    My week as a part of Amazon’s Mechanical Turk army

    Mark Zuckerberg was being interviewed about the early days of Facebook, and I — metaphorically speaking — had my ear to the door, listening to every word. I don’t know where this interview took place, when it happened, or how it got into the hands of a company called Speechpad.

    That didn’t really matter. My job at the moment was to transcribe every word of this interview.
    It was all part of an elaborate testing process for Speechpad, which finds people to transcribe audio files through Amazon’s Mechanical Turk program. I spent a week performing tasks for Mechanical Turk, which is a way of crowd-sourcing labor for menial tasks.

    It's all good.
