More interesting Turkishness from Amazon

Well, Amazon has launched more than Blue Horizon lately.  They are launching Askville,  which has a social component involving a  voting-based trust system not unlike everything2.

What is different here is the use of a virtual currency to back up all that accumulated trust.  The “quest coins” rewarded for useful participation are going to be the coin of the realm in Questville.

Even more interesting, the blog claims that they will be using the Mechanical Turk to ensure every good question gets a good answer.
