OK, this is really cool – putting the time spent on filling in CAPTCHAs to good use to harness the wisdom of the crowd in a big big way – 60 million eyes a day, solving problems that computers cannot solve. Brilliant idea, so many possible applications apart from the simple task of fixing weaknesses in OCR.
Just a little worrying that it could be a tempting target for coordinated practical jokers and maybe worse – CAPTCHA-bombing could be the next big thing 🙂
