One of the oldest commercial platforms for outsourcing micro jobs is Amazon Mechanical Turk ( which is online since 2005. It is made for small and well-defined tasks that need human intelligence. Since it it possible to use more than one worker for a task, and even use a crowd of people, it is often referred to as "crowdsourcing".
Positioned in a completely different area of outsourcable jobs than SourceItOut, this platform also builds on the use of web-based communication and work exchange mechanisms, and also creates completely new opportunities for matching work demand with work seeking individuals.
