I was wondering if anyone has experimented with the Amazon Mechanical Turk site and web service. Very interesting concept with some similarities to Google Answers and Yahoo! Answers. At the site you can submit a whole series of survey questions for people to work on answering and you pay them for the answers. I really like the fact that you can interface with this system through an xml web service. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe Google and Yahoo are offering this type of access. Any thoughts about the usefulness of this service for automating the research you need for building website content.
