Penguin Watch – Natural Science Research by Crowd

June 18, 2018 clickworker blog 3 Comments

The term “clickworker” was famously coined in the year 2000 in a NASA crowd sourcing project. Back then the project concerned detecting and classifying craters on photographs of the surface of Mars. It was a project that, due to the enormous amount of data, could never been completed by NASA employees alone. However internet users were able to accomplish the task, and the term “clickworker” was also born as a byproduct.

Storytelling I – Good Stories Get Retold…

February 27, 2018

My friends are all having children and building houses, and are spread out around the country. In our early 30’s it really is a big event when we manage to meet up and reminisce about the old days.
