Another article on the World Wide Lexicon (WWL) project. '"The idea is to create a distributed data collection system with the goal of handling less-common language pairs," said McConnell. "There are a lot of sites out there that do English to non-English translations. When you get into non-English to non-English language pairs, that information is a lot harder to find."' I'm glad to see Brian's take on distributed (human) computation gleaning such attention.
