Experimenting With Mechanical Turk

A very good how-to article about the process of experimenting with Amazon's Mechanical Turk system. If you don't know about Mechanical Turk, it is one of the longest running experiments with public crowd-sourcing. Open to anyone to participate. There are currently over 28,000 experiments, or Human intelligence tasks, underway. We conducted a number of experiments with the system. The article covers a number of pitfalls we encountered, and some we did not. From Dr. Markus Jakobsson, a principal scientist at PARC.
