Just saw this in [personal profile] undyingking's journal and thought it was a really neat idea.

There's a project scanning old books where the OCR often can't identify the word correctly.  They're using the power of massed real people by making their hard to read words available for all those places where web sites need to distinguish between spambots and real people.

They also have a way for you to use their scheme to list your email address on web sites without getting spammed to death.

I'm sure at least one person on my flist is connected with Sheffield Hallam university.  Do you think the psychology department know their PhD students are spamming LJ?
