Modern Captcha – protect online forms from spam.

Inspired by Seth Godin and developed further by Nicolas, the ModernCaptcha offers a more accessible Captcha solution for people who want to protect online forms from spam bots.

It’s not without it’s problems as obviated by some of the comments on his blog, but this is the start of a better Captcha solution and Nicolas has done a great job. Some of those CAPTCHAs are not even readable by humans!

By the way – you probably encounter CAPTCHAs all the time and just didn’t know what they were called. Visit Wikipedia for more.

    Thanks Nicolas. It has been fixed now :O)

  2. Thanks Peter. As you mentioned in your post, the solution isn’t perfect yet, but we are working on it. I think we’ll have it working by the end of this week.

  3. Hi Peter,

    Thank you for your last mail. I really appreciate the fact that you will follow the blog. As I just wrote in the post on my blog, I’ve made some errors. But one thing is sure, almost everyone likes the idea.

    I also suggest creating a domain http://www.moderncaptcha.com, dedicated to the collaberative improvement of this approach. Do you think this is a good or a bad idea?

    Hope to hear from you soon and if we don’t speak before the 25th, I wish you a Merry Christmas.
