Missing Jim Gray & Satellite Imagery

Computer science icon Jim Gray mysteriously disappeared after a solo trip with his sail boat outside San Francisco Bay. The coast guard has been searching for 4 days but has not been able to locate anything, not even debris. On Thursday 3 private planes searched through the coastal areas and they also returned unsuccessful.
Werner Vogels, CTO - Amazon.com writes that through the generous efforts of his friends, family, various communities and agencies, detailed satellite imagery has been made available for his last known whereabouts( he says from NASA, Digital Globe, Microsoft, Google, Oracle, Amazon and others worked hard get to the data collected and available on a very short time scale) and is asking for help to search the satellite images. The satellite images have been split into smaller tiles that can be easily scanned visually and are stored in the Amazon S3 storage service. Visit the Amazon Mechanical Turk site for details.
