Cool site of the day!

Amazon Mechanical Turk.  Amazon has what they are calling an artificial intelligence software program that works in conjunction with Google Earth.  You are able to search satellite imagery for specific things and make notes.  For example, Mechanical Turk is helping in their search for billionaire/adventurer Steve Fossett.  If you spot something interesting, you can submit your findings.  If you actually find any wreckage, you could get paid!  This same technology is being considered for searches of Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster.  I know that sounds weird, but it’s cool!
