Hi all. I'm a freelance journalist writing a story about the hidden forms of labour powering a lot of today's high tech services. I know much of this work is done by turkers and so I was hoping to find people who might be willing to speak with me about the nature of their work.

The article is part of a series on how working life is changing in the modern world so I'm really interested to find out what the day to day life of a turker is like, how they feel about their jobs and why they do it. The article will deal with some of the problems with how the crowd work industry and other forms of invisible digital labour currently operate, but I also want explore whether this more flexible way of working can teach us something about how to better organise the future of work.

If you want more information please ask away. Would be great to speak to people on the record, but happy for it to be anonymous if required. If anyone's happy to help please reply here or drop me a DM.
