Mechanical Turk by Amazon – Artificial artificial intelligence

One of the best new apps I have discovered for business, particularly in this economic climate where the numbers look great one month and horrible the next.  This allows you to scale up and down by outsourcing work to a global marketplace.  Anything that can be done remotely can probably be procured through Amazon’s Mechanical Turk.
