Massive Online Collaboration

I am fascinated by projects that aim for massive collaboration.  I was ignorant of these until I saw a great TED talk on the subject.  Here is Luis von Ahn describing his work at TEDxCMU:

DuoLingo, the massive collaboration project that Luis describes in the talk is not in beta (I am a beta tester) and it ROCKS!  I am learning Spanish and have already translated parts of the web from Spanish to English :)

Enjoy this, one of my favorite TED Talks. 

Any great ideas on additional massive online collaboration ideas?  Any that target projects and project management?  Add a comment!

FYI:  Here is a screen shot of my DuoLingo page . . .
