Maybe that’s too much of a build up but it totally blew my mind.
You know CAPTCHAs? Those short words that you have to enter to show a site that you’re a human and not an evil spam bot there for some nefarious purpose? Well there’s more going on there.
Each time you enter in a CAPTCHA, you’re helping to digitize a book!
(that’s the sound of your minds being blown, in case you didn’t know)
I just think that’s the coolest thing.
Google can tell you all about it here should you wish to know more.
