Build a Web Crawler / Scraper for Quotations (Repost)

Cancelled

Job Description

We are looking to make a the best database of the quotations on earth. We have 3 data sources where a web crawler using Python/PHP/whichever language or service you'd like would make the job easier so please make sure you've built a web crawler before otherwise this job will take ages.

Our goal is to get at least 350,000 quotations using a crawler script that you'll provide to us in the end. We will also require information about the quote/author of the quote so expect to have at least 5 fields per quote.

Example of a quote:
---
"Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love you will find that you are left holding only yourself."
~Leo F. Buscaglia

We are looking for someone who will remain in daily communication for this task until it is complete (thus why we have to repost this task..). We estimate anyone with scraping experience can complete this in under a week.
