    TEDTalks really are the best.

    Skip to 8:55 for the new stuff (just captcha and recaptcha stuff before then).

    @Mindle You get Education for free. And if it`s true that what he siad, that the results are exactly as good as conventional online translation classes, it has the benefit of
    *not costing anything, therefor bein accessable to poor people
    *you doing something good, which gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling in your tummy

    @Mindle: Perhaps you didn`t watch the video or perhaps you don`t know english and need duolinguo, but you are performing a service while simultaneously receiving a service. You ARE getting paid in other words, except the amounts are equal, so they end up evening out.

    @mindle--facepalm

    Captchas-sites would require you to do them, regardless. This way your time is being used productively, instead of wasted.

    DuoLingo-You`re getting a language education FOR FREE, while your effort is used to translate texts.

    No. Not at all. :/ You learn for free while they translate the entire web for free. You`re not paying them anything except for your time, which you need to use anyway in order to learn a new language.

    Now that I`ve finished this video, I no longer want to kill this man. Captcha may be evil, but this guy is my new favourite villain.

    I will be able to ReN!igger in another language!
