It’s like a real-time, location-based Craigslist with a bit of social networking thrown in and a much more attractive interface. Once signed up, Milk.ly users can list tasks for other users to carry out – anything from urgently picking up a SIM card so your phone works during LeWeb to assembling IKEA furniture or doing data entry. Milk.ly sets a suggested minimum price for tasks based on category and leaves it up to the marketplace from there.
For everyone else, though, the likes of Milk.ly could come in very handy and it’s a new option for finding work at a time when unemployment in Europe is high. Regular milkmen should be able to pull a pretty decent income - and hopefully have fun, meet interesting people and pick up a few useful business skills at the same time.
