Testing the Fowl Play Trailer with Mechanical Turk

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I had heard of Amazon's Mechanical Turk project before, but it was all a little bit over my head until Andy Baio showed how it's done. Mechanical Turk is a way to micropay people to do various tasks that a computer can't do well. Andy demonstrates how to produce a transcript from an mp3 for $15.

I usually ask the people around me what they think of the projects I'm working on, but those people are usually fearful of my fiery temper or already a member of whatever club I'm trying to sign people up for.

So I decided to test the new Fowl Play trailer on an audience of 5 people, for the price of 2 dollars apiece. And I got some interesting feedback:
Mercy For Animals has a Celebrating Compassion Gala event this weekend, so we've edited a new trailer to fire up the guests and get them interested in Fowl Play. If I embed it here it just starts playing recklessly, but you can watch it on the main Fowl Play site or on its page at
