Free Rice

Free Rice is another good non-profit money-for-time site. I like it. The experience is clean. The game is mildly addictive. The vocabulary is pretty tough–I haven’t been able to go much above the low-mid 40s.

At this point, people have donated 1,330,639,890 grains of rice, which is roughly equivalent to nearly 27 tons.

    Quite amusing, and insanely difficult at level 48…

    I like the way they adjust a word’s difficulty level depending on the right/wrong scores, but I imagine that can get skewed by a variation in the intrinsic rarity (*) of a word -vs- the available search results that give a usable definition.

    * English is an odd language, tu sais bien 🙂

  3. Well, Mr. Harwood, sir, that’s what you get for getting up to level 48. 😉
