Seattle MTurk Meetup

Tomorrow is Amazon’s Mechanical Turk Meetup in New York City! I was lucky enough to get to go to the Seattle meetup on the 18th at Amazon HQ. Seattle is a beautiful city and there are plenty of smart people working in the crowdsourcing space.

Here is a short list of some Seattle companies worth checking out:
Smartsheet – smartsourcing your spreadsheet needs
Casting Words – transcription plus, plus
Cloudvox – innovative stuff with API-based phone calls
TagCow – photo tagging bliss

Do check out the NYC meetup tomorrow, September 1st. You’ll see our very own Howie Liu talking about boosting accuracy numbers through iterative task design and statistical quality analysis.
