The web comic xkcd (which is great geek humor) is conducting an on-line color survey, and it reminds me in some ways of our Mechanical Turk. After entering a little information about your monitor settings and y-chromosome status, you are shown various colors and you enter what you would call that color. You can keep going and going and going as long as you want. Perhaps this is a new diversion for those who enjoyed our repetitive REcaptcha.

The survey is at http://aram.xkcd.com/color/

I made 102 selections only - it's very hard to identificate the color.
