OLPC + MTurk = New cheap labour force
November 29, 2006
Give a child a fish; you have fed him for today. Give a child a laptop; he’ll quit school, sign up to Amazon’s MTurk and have a new career.
I can just imagine hundreds of kids hanging round the nearest wireless hotspot with their OLPC’s, either making money from MTurk, making virtual goods on 2nd Life or something similar.
Welcome to the new electronic sweatshop for children.
