Captcha Recap and Update (reCAPTCHA)

In a post last year I referenced an article in the New York Times that explained the acronym-based etymology of the word Captcha and told how entering a Captcha code helps transform old articles and books into computer text files.

One of the inventors of CAPTCHA is heading up a new project that will not only help translate the web, but will also teach people a new language for free.

I urge you to take a few minutes to watch this entertaining presentation about the project.

DuoLingo has my support.
