Silly Friday: Turkers draw Sheep

The Sheep Market is 10,000 sheep drawn by Mechanical Turk Workers. Visit the site and click on the page to see a random sheep facing to the left (per the instructions).

Each worker was paid 2 cents per sheep, and the average amount of time to draw a sheep was 105 seconds. That is an average wage of less than 70 cents per hour. And more than 700 sheep were rejected. At first I thought it was because the sheep were facing the wrong way, but I’ve randomly clicked on about ten sheep and two faced the wrong way.

Happy weekend!
