Whoa: All Things Distributed: Help Find Jim Gray
Amazon is doing what they can to help find a missing sailor (computer scientist Jim Gray) using a combo of satellite photography flights they’ve taken and their Mechanical Turk system to let volunteers check the photos. This is an even better version of the idea I proposed a couple months ago, since it spreads the work out nicely to volunteers. I sure hope it pays off.
Sure hope Jim is found soon and that he is ok..And our thoughts and prayers go out the his family and friends..Can’t imagine what his family is going through…
