Here's a taste of the info gathered from the first 100 responses: a breakdown of country of origin. As suspected, Amazon's U.S.-centric payment system has resulted in a mostly-U.S. workforce, but a few workers from elsewhere are participating.
I also see this same geographic spread in the web stats for this blog:
- 79% United States
- 4% Canada
- 2% UK
- 2% Israel
- 2% France
- 1% each from Cyprus, Finland, Germany,
India, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Romania,
Singapore, Thailand, and (yes!) Turkey.
The idea is very intriguing, but unfortunately U.S. businesses aren't taking advantage of it and the service isn't open to bold people elsewhere.
