Get 3rd World Wages, Right Here in the US!
Amazon.com just started an intriguing new service where you can sign up to complete simple little tasks like identifying buildings in photos or choosing the best photo out of a group -- and you get paid for it. The service is called Mechanical Turk.
Of course, the title of this post is tongue in cheek but realistically, if you tried to do these tasks full time, you would probably only make between a $4-$10 an hour.
That said, I'm actually considering trying it out and making a few extra bucks from some of the funner ones where you are simply looking at photos and choosing the best one.
