30 Internet purchased photos
I posted a HIT (Human Intelligence Tasks) on the Amacon Mechanical Turk* on March 19, 2015, titled Can you “tear” for me? and asked the online workers to upload pictures of themselves tearing for a stipend of 0.25D.
Here is my post:
Hi, I had a bad day and I want to collect photos of people “tearing” for me.
Can you submit a photo\selfie of you “tearing”?
You don’t have to show your whole face in the picture and you don’t have to cry.
Please make sure it is the picture of yourself not from the Internet.
30 photos have been collected on the date of May 19th.
The Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is a crowdsourcing Internet marketplace that enables individuals and businesses (known as Requesters) to coordinate the use of human intelligence to perform tasks that computers are currently unable to do. One can create a HIT (Human Intelligence Tasks) and ask workers to complete the tasks for a monetary payment.
这是一个虚拟世界的请求。在Amazon Mechanical Turk的平台上，我发布了《可以为我“落泪”吗？》的任务，请线上劳务为我拍摄一张自己哭泣的照片并获得0.25美元的酬劳。
