This blog post is all about Amazon Mechanical Turk. While researching a business called Feedback Army, I discovered that their workforce is completely powered by Turkers.

That got me wondering, “What other businesses rely on Amazon Mechanical Turk for their workforce?” and “What are other creative ways that people use Turk?”

A comprehensive article with FAQs about mTurk. I focus on how businesses and workers are using and benefiting from the marketplace.

Here's a follow-up post to my idea that I shared the other day. You already know about me that I come up with a thousand ideas a year (some good, some bad), but don't have the time to execute a fraction of them. I'm going to start sharing my ideas and invention concepts on my blog. Here's my first post about that e-ink smartphone case.

I am new in Costa Rica, but I learn quick. Here's something I wrote earlier today after my first week. I'll continue to add to this list over the next few months.

Here's an idea I had about a feature for your navigation app that allows you to search for destinations within a certain time and distance along your route. Would you use this feature?

My idea for a Google Maps feature that lets you search for destinations along your route.

Jerry serviced the pool on a bank owned property for my company in Thousand Oaks. I have only positive things to say about Jerry and my experience using his services for almost a year. Jerry did repair and replacement on the property's pool equipment and then provided weekly pool cleanings and quarterly filter cleanings. I would recommend him to any other real estate agents with vacant homes and/or local homeowners. He does a great job and is an easy guy to get along with. Thanks again Jerry.

I eat the calabash chicken tenders or the steak philly sandwich every time I've eaten here for the past 13 years. I recommend it to anyone who visits Asheville.
