Merry Christmas Turkers! (And Requesters!)

So it's Christmas! (Well tomorrow is) I hope you've got all your shopping done (I still need to start my wrapping!)

As far as mTurk lately, we've had thousands of Tagging HITs from Amazon which basically just fix it's product labeling system (Awesome use of mTurk). And then of course the Unspun HITs have been steadily entering the stream. And of course there's been little bit of this and that.

But let's forget about work! And just enjoy a Merry Christmas with family (Get along with them! I know it can be hard!)

So, I'm simply rambling here, but hey, have a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. And of course during this busy time of year, remember the holidays are about fun with friends and family, not stressing out over having enough time to get everything done. Make cuts if needed and smell the flowers. And in worst case scenario post HITs to get your work done! Heh.

Have a good one. :-)

Get Paid to Pirate!

Here's a new use of mTurk that I haven't seen before from Nat. He'll pay you a whole 15 cents to:

Find entire The Handing Down by Ed Gerhard in MP3 Format and upload it here.

So, I tried checking to make sure the song isn't in public domain and I don't see any evidence that it is. In fact, here you can go get the album it's in, for 15 bucks.

So Nat, I like your creativity. But if you want to pirate some songs, go get Limewire and leave the Turkers out of it.
