Moral psychology on Amazon Mechanical Turk

If you haven’t heard about Amazon’s Mechanical Turk, it is a program run by the company that allows businesses/end users to come up with “Human Intelligence Tasks” that members complete, usually for a very low fee (many of the tasks literally pay in the pennies). I’d been wondering if this could be used for some sort of experiment.. click the link to see how it has been used.

Obviously, this brings up serious questions of selection bias and whatnot, but still very interesting.
