Google Image Labeler

Google Image Labeler is a game in which you get an online partner who labels/tags the image along with you and both of you get points, depending on the specific labels you provide. The idea is that if two people come up with the same label, it is probably a good one and will make Google’s image search better.

"Each user who wants to participate will be paired randomly with a partner who's currently online and also using Google Image Labeler. Over a 90-second period, both participants will be shown the same set of images and asked to label each image based on what they see. They'll also be shown words that can't be used as labels. Both participants can add as many labels as they want until one of them matches a partner's label. After there's a match, they'll see a new image and continue the cycle, until time runs out. Contributors will also see points they've earned throughout the session."
