Near - que?


Has anyone here done anything with or heard anything about Amazon's Mechanical Turk? Looks like something interesting for info professionals, among others, to pick up a little bit of cash. The pay for each task is, quite literally, pennies, but at a quick glance from my librarian eye, it looks like a lot of them will take seconds. Might be an interesting way to earn a buck or two here and there to supplement my survey income. Provided whatever hidden catches there are aren't too horrible.
