Google Image Labeler

How do you get editors to work for free?

Call it a “game”

“You’ll be randomly paired with a partner who’s online and using the feature. Over a 90-second period, you and your partner will be shown the same set of images and asked to provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see. When your label matches your partner’s label, you’ll earn some points and move on to the next image until time runs out. After time expires, you can explore the images you’ve seen and the websites where those images were found. And we’ll show you the points you’ve earned throughout the session” 

How thrifty!

Remind me how much is Google worth, again?

    This seems like yet another genius idea by Google. They’ve got people working for them for free, and have made a game out of it. High point earners are posted on the site. It looks like a few of them are working for Google fulltime — for free!
