A Kind Machine

This is too sweet! So I recently signed up with Amazon Mechanical Turk, a crowdsourcing marketplace that enables computer programs to co-ordinate the use of human intelligence to perform tasks which computers are unable to do. So for example, you could get paid 10c each time you correct some data on a form, or 50c to add a title and description to a video, that sort of thing.

Well today I stumbled across the Kind Machine! You can get paid 50c to take a photo of you, your kind machine and your good deed. This is how it works.

1. Print out a kind machine or draw one. Here are some examples:

2. Think of a good deed

3. Take a photo of you with your kind machine, doing a good deed.

4. Submit it to the site along with the description and reason for your good deed. 50c in the bank too! hehe. Sweet!
