Hi all. I read an article about a new type of captcha that could leave
us in

the dark all over again, so I thought it would be of interest. It's
based on

3D image-identification. See
http://news.cnet.com:80/8301-17938_105-10204300-1.html?tag=nl.e703

I tried to contact YUNiTi, the captcha's designers, but of course the
contact form had the same style of captcha. So I contacted the article's
author, who was kind enough to put me in touch with the co-founder of
the
company. The poor guy was stimied by the idea of giving us a viable
alternative, but he says if anyone has one, he'd be happy to hear it.
So...if anybody does, email me off list and I'll give you the
co-founder's
email address. he said I could give it out as long as I didn't post it
anywhere.

I hope, by getting this article out there, someone might have a flash of
brilliance that might help us all, since if this takes hold, it would
render

WebVisum obsolete.
