    Amazon's Mechanical Turk used in Fossett search

    The potential mix of human with computer intelligence is interesting:
    While people helping to hunt for Fossett and Gray are volunteers, other Mechanical Turk projects pay participants, usually less than US$0.25 per task.

    Mechanical Turk isn't the only online service that relies on human intelligence. ChaCha.com, a search engine launched last year, uses human "guides" to provide search results. A user inserts a search term and a remote worker searches for the answer, sending links to Web pages back to the user. The guide may be an expert in the subject the user is searching for so may be able to find better results than other search engines, according to ChaCha.

    Mahalo.com is another search site that uses people to compile results for common search terms. Workers weed out spam sites, pages with overbearing advertising and sites that use information without giving appropriate credit to the source.

    I checked about 340 frames today, and found 2 with things that looked like they could be aircraft parts.

    The job would be a lot faster if they would "web2" the site so that they didn't redraw the screen every time you submitted a pic, and didn't require moving the mouse miles to click the "nothing to see here, move along" button THEN a submit button miles away from that.

    With a properly designed interface, I could have done 3 times the number of frames in teh same time and not got RSI in the process.

    Does nobody else find it really strange that nothing has been seen of him for so long?

    Yeah, you would think after almost a month and a half and the technology we have today, some trace could be found.

    Wow.. bit off subject, just looking at this and what some of the hits require, sounds like this is kind of scammy.. or too easy?! From amazon though, I'd see it as something I could trust.

    Oh wait.. if someone can do one of the easy 10 cent tasks, twice a minute, that's 12 dollars an hour.. while, that'd be "easy" money.. not a ton, plus very boring.. so maybe not scammy afterall, lol.

    I mean the Mechanical Turk, mentioned above.

    I was looking it over, and it almost seems like a scam, but from amazon, so seems like a real way to make extra money? lol

    Either he wanted to disappear (which he has plenty of money to do) or he is dead. He might be a good adventurer, but doubtful he is alive.

    Death can find anybody though.

    Looks like they found his plane but not the body - Crews find plane believed to belong to Fossett

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26976119/?GT1=43001

    "They also cautioned that hundreds of planes have gone down in the region, so any wreckage found could be that of other aircraft."

    And that's why I don't get in small planes.

    Pretty sad. The man has played with and cheated death several time and to be honest with you the guy is such a survivalist that in the back of my mind I was thinking/hoping some how he would of been found alive even after this amt of time. Yeah, wishful thinking!

    I know when the search began when he went missing it is like Trust says, there are soooo many crashes out that way that have never been found that they were finding other crashes while looking for him.
