Turing would be proud

From Don Park, reCAPTCHA.

About 60 million CAPTCHAs are solved by humans around the world every day. In each case, roughly ten seconds of human time are being spent. Individually, that's not a lot of time, but in aggregate these little puzzles consume more than 150,000 hours of work each day. What if we could make positive use of this human effort?

I claim precedence for the idea of leveraging identity operations. My legal representatives will be in touch.
