Google Images

Will Google rule the world? I don't know, but I do know Google has turned work into a game. Not your work, their work - sorry.

Google wants to "improve the quality of Google's image search results." A noble corporate goal and one that if achieved, should contribute to Google's bottom line . . . and you can help.

You may log onto your Google account or log on as a guest at the Google Image Labeler and then:

You'll be randomly paired with a partner who's online and using the feature. Over a 90-second period, you and your partner will be shown the same set of images and asked to provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see. When your label matches your partner's label, you'll earn some points and move on to the next image until time runs out. After time expires, you can explore the images you've seen and the websites where those images were found. And we'll show you the points you've earned throughout the session.
It is like a game and Google thanks you.
