Crowdsourcing — Creating Minute workers in cyberspace

We are all going to be minute workers — some of us may be identified as such already.  Wired has a piece entitled Crowdsourcing describing how this new market for labor will work.  Another piece, entitled 5 rules for the new workforce describes the parameters within which this labor market functions.  Wired then gives you a short list of who is using this market.

So, in order for you to find work — you gotta hang out on the cyber corner, waiting for someone to say they need some help.  Course, RSS and other similar databus technologies will help you avoid spending lots of real time waiting on work — and will help you filter the opportunities.
