According to TechCrunch, the billionth judgment was made by someone in Cariacica, Brazil. That Crowdflower user verified database details about an a small Australian business for a U.S. based company.
Founded by Chris Van Pelt and Lukas Biewald, CrowdFlower now has over 5 million contributors. The company recently announced the ability to test users for skills so that the platform can identify “higher value crowds.”
