Amazon Mechanical Turk

Saw this great new tool on Amazon in Fast Company Magazine.   MTurk is an online marketplace for digital piece-work where a company or individual can hire Low-Income workers.    Do you have a survey for your company?   Do you want to take an inexpensive non-scientific poll?  This is the place.  Amazon calls each piece-work role a human intelligence task.  The jobs offered are very simplistic and hardly pay a living wage...but it is an interesting concept.  Take a look to see where it can help you.  On a side note, Check out the Fast Company Link above for a 1 Year subscription for under $5.00.   HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
