Hey Greg! We've had one professor interested in using Keplr for HS comp sci students to write code for him that converts between data formats, which usually takes him a couple hours to do. I think an effective model for crowdsourcing harder tasks is the one at http://www.innocentive.com/, which presents tasks as competitions and therefore eliminates the researcher's obligation to provide training. A day to a week's time investment for specialized training doesn't make much sense unless the worker is going to be doing the task for a long time, and hence it's reasonable to give these tasks to grad students. Let me know if you think of any examples of these!

Hour or so fail. Just brushed teeth; now onto figuring out how to blog here.
