"Work, as it turns out, is in fact radically atomized and inane zombie labor. Mechanical Turk does not reveal the identity of the employer to the worker and even if workers click away for 60 hours a week, they may have no idea what they're working on. The vast majority of this mind-numbing click work is exploitative simply because it isn't humanely possible to make minimum wage."
"Good talk on the exploitative effect of the digital labor" — Stanislas Jourdan
