    Dec 5 2012: A Massive-scale online collaboration section, for starters a transcription section.
    Using “Luis von Ahn: Massive-scale online collaboration” talk as inspiration, start with a way for TED posters to suggest and add scans of historical documents.
    Example documents form Tomas Edison, Leonardo da Vinci, etc and I say any pre-1700 document.
    Then have it so we could transcribe them, I for one would enjoy the mental exercise of doing the transcribing and feel good for add to the common good.

    I unlike recaptcha I would hope we could see the whole document and select an area of interest. (Like 1630’s ship manifest or 1920s newspapers)
