A very thoughtfull post,
Some ideas are clearly very well thought through.

If MTurk succeeds, I seriously believe it could revolutionise the web. But equally, it could be brought down by spammers, hackers and captcha breakers. A lot of these tasks could actually be achieved by a script, rendering the data gathered virtually useless. And if every site with a captcha can now be beaten by a single user and his army of human minds, we're going to see a *massive* increase in splogs and spam.

Either way, MTurk has already made its mark by simply putting this out into the world - I'm sure other people will pick up the idea and run with it, hopefully adding the necessary layers of security if Amazon has failed to do so.
