Spudaroo - Where your tedious tasks are completed by others, on the cheap.

I’ve been looking for a site that can effectively leverage collaboration, and finally I think I found something of note -  Check out Spudaroo.com

Not sure what the title means exactly, but the site itself is quite well designed, and hits a very specific need – People have specific, time consuming, tasks that they would love to delegate to someone else.  The problem is, for tasks as important as having someone write your business plan, or crafting your resume, you don’t want to entrust it to any single individual.  You’d rather have several people work on the task, and pick the best one. 


Historically, you’d have to hire 5 different people at once, and pay each of them for their work.   Spudaroo enables people to price out the service they need done, and evaluate the individuals looking to do the work.  I absolutely love this idea, and plan on submitting quite a bit of work/tasks/projects to Spudaroo in the near future.
