Good Afternoon, A few years ago I remember doing some work on a website that was through amazon.com and the earnings would be directly deposited into my amazon account. It had something to do with looking through a series of pictures and placing boxes around things like grates in the road or street signs (whatever they told you they wanted outlined). Does anyone know the name of it or have the link to it?? Thanks!

As others have mentioned, it is Mechanical Turk (mturk.com) that you're thinking about. MTurk is a site with thousands of online jobs to do posted by thousands of different employers...I believe the work you're remembering was posted by a company called Geospatial Vision. I always enjoyed their tasks, though sadly I haven't seen them posting any recently.
