Very Interesting Game-Changer using Mechanical Turk

by Jeff Barr | on | in Thought Pieces |

There’s a really interesting post over at the BitPorters blog today. Read it, think about it, and let us know (via comments here or on the original post) what you think.

I regularly tell my audiences that our services allow developers to be innovative and creative. I also tell them that innovation and creativity isn’t limited to building something that’s new and cool, but that it can mean creating an entirely new business model in addition to (or even instead of) building something new and cool.

Today’s post is a perfect example of this. Sure there’s code involved, but the real innovation is turning site visitors into site supporters by asking them to do a little bit of work on your behalf.
