TODO: briefly describe

TODO: structure the goals and what we want to say

TODO: explain logistic details (e.g. we will publish our emails/letters on a public website/tumblr)

Goals:

  • opening communication BOTH ways, meaning we end up with a two-way conversation going back and forth somehow
  • a response from Mr. Bezos would be awesome too :)
  • more resources for Turkers? what would those be?
  • presenting to media the truth about Turkers
    • We don't all live in developing countries
    • We’re not all unskilled
    • We’re not all making $1.45/hour
    • We’re not all Turking for beer money
    • Etc.

What we want to say:

  • Turkers are human beings, not algorithms, and should be marketed accordingly
  • Turkers should not be sold as cheap labour, but instead skilled, flexible labour which needs to be respected
  • Turkers need to have a method of representing themselves to Requesters and the world via Amazon (not sure what that could be)
