Google Labeler

Date February 13, 2009

My colleague, Shelley, and I were presenting on Embracing Chaos this weekend at the regional Lang & Lit conference, and I came across the Google Image Labeler. Simply put, this is an online Google “game” that pits you against another googler in a labeling game. Images pop up and you label these images as quickly as possible and there’s a list of taboo words (that I believe are already labeled as such). Giving you points and letting you “play” tricks people into labeling Google Images. Pretty cool, and I sure didn’t mind it. Why not? Here’s my screen shot after my first round.
