Crowdsourcing in China is a thriving industry. Among its most interesting structures, we find crowdfarms, in which crowdworkers self-organize as small organizations to tackle macrotasks. Little, however, is known as to which practices these crowdfarm... Read More about Tasks of a Different Color: How Crowdsourcing Practices Differ per Complex Task Type and Why This Matters.
