I got caught in a rabbit hole the other day, reading about automatons. I came across one called The Mechanical Turk, and found it very interesting, but as I was reading and researching it, I came up with something on Amazon called Amazon Mechanical Turk, and it is apparently a site where you can do little odd jobs for pay, some for mere pennies. I found it to be an interesting concept, and just wondered if anyone here has heard of this or has done it?

I immediately thought about this Mechanical Turk (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Turk). But it isn't the one you found.

That is exactly where I started - learning about that mechanical Turk. I watched a program on it, and found it fascinating, and stumbled upon Amazon's site, which is named after that automaton.

I've done it. You won't get rich but yo ucan make some money.

Personally I recommend instagc, which can pay out in gift cards, pay pal, check, or direct deposit instead of just your bank account or amazon with turk.
