You Can Help Find Jim Gray

From Dan Rosenfeld of Microsoft Research:

As some of you may know, our colleague Jim Gray is currently missing, having failed to return from a sailing trip in Northern California. Here’s a NYT article discussing Jim’s contributions and the efforts to find him.

I learned from the article that there’s an effort on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk site which allows volunteers to search satellite imagery for Jim’s sailboat.

You can help by spending a few minutes on the task at this site.”

Please spent a few minutes. Thank you.
