LISTEN to the clues --

Post by MJ_Fan_For_40_yrs on Wed Aug 05, 2009 4:41 pm

Thought I'd look around today....went to peterpan.org as well as peterpan.net. We know that brings us to the Michael Jackson Live! page.
I looked around on there, went to register.

Here's the part that I think is a clue: The audio (not the words, but the audio) that you listen to, then "type what you hear" in the box (to rid spammers -- hope you get what I'm saying) ...the audio clips are like from old movies!!

One of the audios: "I'm too young to die!" "Oh, you're not gonna die..."
Another one: "It sounds kind of familiar, but I can't place it."
And another: "...known me for a couple of weeks. She decided I was the kind of guy..."

What do you guys think?? (I can't imagine it's a cruel joke...these hvae GOT to be clues...)

Wow, there are a lot of them, all of them sound like old movieclips... They are not clear though, is this normal for verification? I've never tried it on other sites.

yes it is common.

did you know that with these kind of verification you help to digitalyze old books ?

it's on thousands of sites on the net (e.g. on ticketmaster)

the system is called "reCAPTCHA" and has definitely nothing to do with MJ

learn more about it here:

or here: http://recaptcha.net/learnmore.html


"
Digitizing Books One Word at a Time

reCAPTCHA is a free CAPTCHA service that helps to digitize books, newspapers and old time radio shows. Check out our paper in Science about it (or read more below).

A CAPTCHA is a program that can tell whether its user is a human or a computer. You've probably seen them — colorful images with distorted text at the bottom of Web registration forms. CAPTCHAs are used by many websites to prevent abuse from "bots," or automated programs usually written to generate spam. No computer program can read distorted text as well as humans can, so bots cannot navigate sites protected by CAPTCHAs.

About 200 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? reCAPTCHA does exactly that by channeling the effort spent solving CAPTCHAs online into "reading" books.

To archive human knowledge and to make information more accessible to the world, multiple projects are currently digitizing physical books that were written before the computer age. The book pages are being photographically scanned, and then transformed into text using "Optical Character Recognition" (OCR). The transformation into text is useful because scanning a book produces images, which are difficult to store on small devices, expensive to download, and cannot be searched. The problem is that OCR is not perfect."
