How Amazon/AMT can change the internet economy

BPAndrew - How Amazon/AMT can change the internet economy:

"This post is an “out there” idea based on top of Amazon Mechanical Turk (don’t bother reading this is until you know how AMT works) which in some regards is already an “out there” idea. I have no doubt that following system can change the internet economy from its existing state as an ad/referral model to a collective pool of people supporting each other.

[...] You’ve heard of SHAREWARE, what about the concept of WORKWARE (people perform a few micro tasks in your name to pay for the right to use it). I see this concept changing the business model of anything from file download sites to the independent game industry / open source community."
