The White Glove Tracking Project is to Michael Jackson's white glove as Distributed Proofreading is to books. (Partially inspired by the Clickworks Project and the work of artist Paul Pfeiffer)

That was awesome. I did 2 frames as well. Hopefully 2500 other people helped out as well.

The glove is on his left hand, correct? His other hand was in a shadow, so I wasn't sure. That page needs a way to play all the glove-tracked frames in sequence to see the motion he's (claiming to be) interested in.

Ditto. But that Distributed Proofreading is sweet.

And, Paul Pfeiffer?

I did 100 and had to pull myself away. What is wrong with me?

But, everyone knows, it's all in the footwork.

It's too bad it doesn't give you random frames instead of a bunch in a row. I'd have lost interest much later if the glove wasn't in the same place in all the frames I had.
