    CrowdSource Raises $12.5 Million in Series A Funding

    http://www.crowdsourcing.org/editori...-funding/20554

    “The goal is not to have the most workers but the best and most loyal workers,” CrowdSource’s Suzanne Obszanski told Crowdsourcing.org. “We have a proprietary worker profiling, testing and career system, which will take CrowdSource to the next level in terms of quality of work and scale. At the end of the day, worker recruitment, worker testing and worker qualification are the lifeblood of crowdsourcing.”

    ...

    “With these new funds, we will continue building our worker management software, increase our sales team and expand our service offerings into other verticals,” she explained. “CrowdSource has a list of additional features that it plans to add to its suite of services to remain in front of the evolving industry.”

    Wonder if payouts will increase for people who do their work?

    Hoo-Rah for Crowdsourse.
    The small amount of work I qualify to do for Crowdsourse didn't reflect the phenomenal profit* from last year,
    so I don't expect the extra 12.5 Million will either. It may raise pay for more-better qualifications, which are well
    deserved, but howz about an increase across the board on a sliding scale?

    In any event, thanks for the information frb.


    *412% sticks in my craw for some reason, please correct me if that is wrong.
