The day has come. After several months of blood, sweat and tears, the fruit of our labor is finally ready and roaring to go live. Coming Monday, on September 12, CEO Mark Sears and VP of Business Development Tom Puskarich will unveil CloudFactory at Techcrunch Disrupt in San Francisco amidst a 1700-strong crowd of entrepreneurs, business leaders, hackers, journalists, and investors. Following the launch, CloudFactory will be open for the entire world to get their digital work done through its Cloud Labor API (right now you need an invitation code to set up your own factory in CloudFactory).
In case this is the first time you are hearing about this new service, CloudFactory is the Cloud Labor API for businesses to build applications that are powered by real people. If you are interested in how it works, you should definitely have a look at our previous blog post.
It's been quite a journey since this idea of creating an on-demand cloud-based workforce of hundreds of thousands of people was first conceived nineteen months ago. After all these months of hectic days and sleepless nights we spent arguing, agreeing, and coding, we were able to launch CloudFactory in private beta 4 weeks ago. The plethora of feedback, bug reports, and suggestions we received from our beta users ever since had enabled us to further refine the product.
