  • Amazon's mechanical Turk - come up with a task that multiple people to work on (paid). IE) checking e-mais paid 5 cents. System for crowd sourcing, volunteers (why, what keeps them working on it, what do they find rewarding, do they need their names highlighted, do they need special recognition.) Start thinking about research questions - what do we want to learn?
  • Figure out motivation - interviewing, see the speed at which the get it done, who does the most? (long tail effect) - Want to interview the extremes, long analysis (when do they check out a clip and how long does it take to for them to finish). Long analysis and statistics, interviews, .
  • Draw together research questions and then identify the methodology we need to use (one page) build in the analytics.
  • Need to start doing a literature review - MA wrote his thesis on motivation and crowd-sourcing - use this as a bibliography.
  • Look at Mechanical Turk (commercializing crowd sourcing - a meta system), Boinc as well. (SETI project - looking through all the wave lengths to find an intelligent signal, screensaver plays on the computer - like a super computer with other peoples computer). Boinc takes this idea and abstracts it.
