FAST COMPANY - Feb 1 - Lauren McCarthy, an artist and programmer is currently beta-testing Social Turkers. When she meets up with the stranger, she props her iPhone on the table, presses the record button, and begins broadcasting a video and audio stream of the date in real time. The video stream is viewed by the task-rabbits who take part in Amazon's Mechanical Turk, the crowdsourcing service. Throughout the date, the "social Turkers" answered polls, wrote reviews of what they are seeing, and sent text messages to her iPhone suggesting what to say or do next. McCarthy is currently working on an easy-to-use app version.
