I've submitted about 70 in 30 minutes or so; I think, with the 29 pending, I can make about $1.50 total overall.

Some are dead giveaways, while some aren't, but hey -- if 30 minutes will add up here and there, great.

This is different - do they just have guys drive around with cameras on the cars and shoot shots as they drive?

I believe that the current tests are for a feature of Alexa which is not done yet. I think they are putting storefront pictures up for addresses when you search for them. It seems like a pretty cool idea, actually.

There could be a million different uses of the mechanical turk, but for now only Alexa (Amazon) is posting work on the site.

I think you mean A9, not Alexa. Try http://maps.a9.com/ to see where they're going with all this.

Yeah, see, this is why I shouldn't rely on my memory.

I've made about $3.39 for an hour's work, but I still have about 70 pending. They had one neighborhood near me, so most of it was easy (I had 18 rejected, though.) Any idea if there's some sort of cap on this? I could easily see myself getting addicted to this and blowing off my real job to make $3 an hour clicking. Sad, I know.

There is no cap, but I've got to think you'd go crazy.

If you do this full time, you'd have to figure out the tax ramifications. Remember, you're an independant contractor for Amazon - just like your favorite pro wrestlers. That means no bennies or help with payroll tax or whatever.

I'd work on getting a better career.

By blowing off, I didn't mean quitting. I'm not THAT crazy.

But, it's a fun little way to take a few bucks off future Amazon purchases.
