Go ahead - try to convince me that bidding out projects where someone, with a straight face, offers $1 per article for the editing, writing, or re-writing of 35-60 articles about whatever doesn't, like, redefine slavery or slave-labor. Bring me around to your way of thinking and lead me into the promised land where people are able to realistically survive and thrive on these kind of inhumane freelance wages. Seriously? Really?

POST-SCRIPT: Out of desperation, I signed up with oDesk. You should, too, if you want to get a sense of how low in devalued human mental labor is in mid-2010.
