Kickstarter Launches in the U.K.
Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding giant Kickstarter made its international debut today, officially launching in the United Kingdom. Previously, project creators based in the U.K. could only launch projects if they had a bank account and address in the U.S., perhaps through a friend of colleague. This is because Amazon Payments – the platform’s default payment processing company – does not support non-U.S. recipients.

Crowdsortium Symposium: Payment Issues
Does Lack of Reputation Help the Crowdsourcing Industry?
Cloud Labor

Can the lack of a public reputation system on Amazon Mechanical Turk be the reason behind the success of current crowdsourcing companies? My analysis points to this conclusion. Unfortunately, this "feature" also leads to a stagnating crowdsourcing market with limited growth potential.

A contentious issue about crowdsourcing, and specifically about Amazon Mechanical Turk, is that wages are very low. It is not uncommon to see effective wages of $1/hr, or even lower. Why is that?

I have argued in the past that Mechanical Turk is an example of a ‘market for lemons’ — good workers are drowning in the anonymity of the crowd. Since the good workers cannot differentiate themselves from bad workers before working on a task, they are doomed to receive the same level of compensation as the bad workers.

Spam 2.0: Does Microtasking Lead to a Loss in Value?
Tools

When developing new web platforms and products we take what help we can get from any expert that will lend a helping hand. Now we have the means to formalize this approach on a pay-as-you-go basis by leveraging any one of the numerous platforms that have sprung up that provide us with access to an unlimited supply of micro workers. Yet, it makes you wonder where this may lead and whether in fact by diminishing the true value of a Like or a Digg, our actions are resulting in a deflationary spiral which is leading to the devaluation of social currency.

Mechanical Turk, Low Wages, and the Market for Lemons
Tools

I recall a highly talked about presentation (although highly unconventional) by M. Six Silberman whereby he discussed the "Sellers' problems in human computation markets". The basic question: can we protect the workers there from exploitation and from sweatshop salaries? Luis von Ahn posted a similar post on his blog. In the comments of the blog post, someone suggested that the low wages on Mechanical Turk is simply the result of high supply of workers and low demand for their work however I argue that what Amazon Mechanical Turk is today is a market for lemons, following the terminology of Akerlof's famous paper, for which he got the 2001 Nobel prize.
