Due to my transition into the Spring semester, I was unable to do these tasks above; but I will do them once I've settled in to my coursework.

Readings

MobileWorks

  • What do you like about the system / what are its strengths?

- Allows people with low-end phones to contribute and generate income - People can generate income if they're already on the end of the spectrum where they are low income earners - People can work at anytime through their mobile phone


  • What do you think can be improved about the system?

- It could be more applicable (or be built for) people in other income brackets; assuming they have a totally different skillset that allows them to complete these higher income type of tasks

Daemo

  • What do you like about the system / what are its strengths?

- Actively focused on solving the problems between requesters and workers; as this seems to be one of the bigger issues based off of what I've read - The tools given such as prototyping tasks and revising instructions for requesters, rating system


  • What do you think can be improved about the system?

- Communication should be very simple and quick; in order for people to successfully continue work when they're not sure of something the requester wants, they need to clear things up as soon as possible.

Flash Teams

  • What do you like about the system / what are its strengths?

- Tasks can be completed quickly - The teams seem to be easily manageable

  • What do you think can be improved about the system?

- Their should be a quality check; the requester needs to be actively involved in order to track progress and make sure they're getting what they want

I posted this in #engineer-deliver but figured I'd add it here as well. I took a screenshot of my daemo setup on Windows 8
