Over the holidays I watched this fantastic TED Talk by Luis von Ahn. I realized how our hobby is making the world a better place as we type more CAPTCHAs on a daily basis than everyone else.
Watch the full video to learn more about CAPTCHAs and how you are contributing to humanity.
After re-purposing CAPTCHA so each human-typed response helps digitize books, Luis von Ahn wondered how else to use small contributions by many on the Internet for greater good. In this talk, he shares how his ambitious new project, Duolingo, will help millions learn a new language while translating the Web quickly and accurately — all for free.
