A quick blog post about “captchas” — those annoying devices that make you prove you are human online by forcing you through a dehumanizing process of guessing illegible numbers and letters.This is a great idea from Solve Media and I will definitely make sure we let appropriate clients know about it — and hopefully do some experimenting with it as both an advertising vehicle (for our advertising clients) and as a make-website-visitors-happier-and-maybe-make-some-extra-cash-at-the-same-time vehicle (for our website owning clients).I’m not going to describe the idea… just watch the video which also happens to be really really well done.

EXCELLENT IDEA – EVERYONE WINS. MORE THAN HALF THE TIME, I AM UNABLE TO READ ONE OR MORE LETTERS IN THE ‘CAPTCHA’, AND HAVE TO START ALL OVER AGAIN, WITH NO CREDIT GIVEN FOR EFFORT OR GOOD GUESSWORK. THIS IS AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME.
