Paid by the second

An assisted search start up ChaCha Search has come up with a novel way of paying it’s “guides”.

From Wired: “Workers at ChaCha are experts in specific topics, and they help users of the search tool find information that, presumably, only somebody in the know would be able to uncover. The ChaCha guides earn between $5 and $10 an hour as a starting wage, and any money they earn can be dumped instantly onto a debit card and spent right away. The guides keep track of their earnings on the ChaCha site and can get their earnings by clicking a “Pay Me Now” button on their personalized page.”
