Amazon's Mechanical Turk ( allows you to create a menial task for thousands of internet users to perform. For instance, for $0.01, you can ask them to do things that a computer simply can't - such as categorize a picture, or identify a face, or...answer a very simple question.

We asked 100 Turks to tell us who they were and why they turked. Discover their answers in this, the first of a series of Turk-generated books.
