This brief article by Rochelle LaPlante and M. Six Silberman shares information about why workers need a place to share information and talk about the value of an open, democratic community driven by workers called MTurk Crowd. The article compares MTurk Crowd to the other existing MTurk communities (Turker Nation, MTurk Forum and MTurk Grind). It is a good summary of the importance of such communities to connect workers, which is something lacking on the platform itself.
It still boggles my mind that Amazon continues to avoid providing this type of service.
Congratulations Rochelle and Six!
