Ten Thousand Cents

I've been trying to come up with a cool idea for Amazon's Mechanical Turk a while now (to no avail). This is one I wish I had thought of: Ten Thousand Cents paid 10,000 people 1 cent each to draw a picture of 1/10,000th of a $100 bill (lots of numbers in that sentence). The final product is for sale and they've got some making of videos as well. As a side note, I think some of what Amazon's up to is so insanely smart: Mechanical Turk, EC2, Fulfillment Web Service and TextBuyIt to name a few.
