Insipiring: The hidden purpose of CAPTCHA

Once in a while, you came by a great video that inspires you and all you want to do is sharing it with your entourage. Well, this is exactly the purpose of this article!
Before letting you scroll down and hopefully enjoy it as much as I did, I'd like to introduce the speaker and what he's talking about.

Luis von Ahn is a professor and an entrepreneur in Computer Science and one of CAPTCHAs inventor. CAPTCHA is the character based security system that we always have to fill to make sure the response or the actions are not generated by a computer.

Like everyone and before watching the video, I found this system very annoying specially when the words are really messed up! But now it feels like collaborating to make the digital world a better place!
