Amazon Mechanical Turk, or mTurk, is a nice way to make some extra cash from home. You won't get rich, but it's absolutely worth doing in my opinion. Many times it has been my only income, but I had to work very hard. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to make it.
What is mTurk?
mTurk is a service from Amazon. It has been around since late 2005 and has over 500,000 task workers, including myself. It's a crowdsourcing site where workers finish tasks and earn money. The tasks are called HIT's (Human Intelligent Tasks). Workers choose when they want to work, and which tasks they want to complete.
