I've been turking for a little under two weeks now and have earned $112 so far. I'm excited to be using mTurk for my mad money, which will free up my 9-to-5 income for bills. A little about me: -- I'm a doctoral fellow working on a PhD in English lit. -- I've been playing video games since 1989, and still play something just about every day. -- I collect/use fountain pens.
