Instead of editing photos and looking for sensor dust on our photos, let's spend some time to help searching for the missing Malaysian airline plane. I guess we all got very sharp eyes which could be especially useful in this case. Here's the link:

Think this one's on the level. It's been tried before with mechanical turk over the disappearance of Steve Foss? and his hot air balloon in the U.S.A.

In theory, it's a great concept - many pair of eyes scouring current satellite images in pre-defined grids at a good resolution.

I am in Malaysia at the moment. Travelled down from Thailand a few days ago and driving on to KL tomorrow morning. Today I have heard some very silly conspiracy stories - eg UFOs etc. On the radio this morning it was mentioned that the authorities had been receiving spurious reports from people not understanding that satellite images including eg Google Earth are not real time and are often months or years old.

Are the images in the link even current - I cannot see that here?

Here's a link to a The Verge article about it:
http://www.theverge.com/2014/3/12/5499584/malaysia-airlines-flight-mh370-search

The link is legit.

Colorado-based DigitalGlobe has sent two of its satellites to survey the Gulf of Thailand and the South China Sea, targeting areas that haven't been covered by other satellites or where inclement weather could have hindered previous attempts. The company is also looking at the Strait of Malacca, after (disputed) reports yesterday suggested that the aircraft could have traveled far off course. The company's images should be available online by early Wednesday, where volunteers will be able to help scan them.

The images will be published on Tomnod, a crowdsourcing site where users help identify debris from natural disasters or other incidents. After DigitalGlobe published its first satellite images on Monday, the site saw an unprecedented influx of traffic more than 500,000 unique visitors within 24 hours forcing it to reboot its servers. According to DigitalGlobe senior manager Luke Barrington, 100,000 users scanned the first images, collectively examining each pixel 100 times over.


However, all the traffic has crashed their servers, and so they were down the last I checked.

This hasn't received much publicity yet, but I think there's a good chance that it's going to lead to the truth about what happened:

An oil rig worker working off the south-eastern coast of Vietnam claims to have witnessed the crash of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane.

The site doesn't seem to work in Google Chrome.  It works fine in IE.
