Experience the life of a Worker on Mechanical Turk Reflect on your experience as a worker on Mechanical Turk.

I didnt got access on it(even after 48 hour of activation time they asked for) So I worked on MicroWorkers.

What did you like?

1.MicroWorkers is has more user friendly GUI than Mechanical Turk..

2.students to low paid workers can earn ..

3.Step by Step procedure interface is nice

4.its fast as i got money within 24hours as they said

What did you dislike?

1.When we create our account they should give us mail box facility ,for each user, so that all the mails (such as in signup task u get mail containing activation link) regarding the task come to inbuilt mailbox in microworkers (My gmail box keep getting mail about the site i just registers for earning small amt money..Its irritating as a user )

Explore alternative crowd-labor markets Compare and contrast the crowd-labor market you just explored (TaskRabbit/oDesk/GalaxyZoo) to Mechanical Turk.

i explored Task Rabbit.It was nice to see crowd sourcing is not about let customers work online ..It also deals with other jobs .Task Rabbit has more attractive GUI too.
