Many Turkers have compsci/IT backgrounds

A new study investigated Turker backgrounds :

“Our results show that 24% of the study participants have a computer science or IT background and most people are payment driven when choosing tasks.”

The authors only surveyed about 1200 people on Mturk so YMMV.
