Joining Facebook!

I'm really excited to announce that I'm going to be joining Facebook to work on the infrastructure team. With all the growth Facebook has seen comes unique challenges in scaling systems. I'm looking forward to working on this.

Of course, this also means saying good bye to Google and reCAPTCHA. It's been over 3 years since we started working on the crazy idea of getting millions of people to digitize the world's books in their spare time. I'm looking forward to seeing reCAPTCHA continue to grow.

Are dealt with. Facebook is fine, so long as it's not poking it's nose into people's privacy. Also please allow facebook users to control specifically what "Recent Updates" make it to their wall. In general people want more control over what they share, please explain this to the rest of the team, Thanks!

Ben Great to hear your going to facebook. I wanted to pick your brain about a new captcha product we are launching. http://confidenttechnologies.com/

Let me know your thoughts etc.

re: confidenttechnologies

Personally, I think the image authentication and the image CAPTCHA technology isn't really that great. Even if some folks are willing to buy it now, I don't think it will stand up to scrutiny by security experts. On the other hand, the cellphone based OTP has great potential as a product (and I think it is a technology which has a bright future). I highly recommend focusing effort on that product.
