Microwork: Making money from mobiles
Summary The growing trend for "microwork" means the phone in your pocket could earn you extra cash one tiny job at a time.
Description In hyperconnected world, a problem shared is more likely a problem distributed amongst hundreds, thousands or even millions of people. That is the basic principle of a growing trend called microwork.
