It Fascinates Me

I think I first heard of the Mechanical Turk from some TED talk on TED.org but I forget which one. The Economist in me is intriqued at how one can use spare time to make a tiny bit of cash. It's like a good way to make use of small bits of free time when nothing productive can be done with it. I do it once every few months and only made less than $2 which went toward something I bought on Amazon (which I rarely do, as I hate shopping & consumerism). Think of all the time that people with computers waste, and imagine it being put to better use to help the economy. Crowdsourcing. It's all quite clever.
