Submission + - Help Find Jim Gray on Mechanical Turk

David Molnar writes: "Jim Gray, recipient of UC Berkeley's first PhD in CS, has been missing for several days after setting out to sail from San Francisco to the Farallon Islands.

It only takes a small amount of time, so please consider helping out."
