a brief profile of our crowd-sourcing project VerbCorner on SciStarter.com, with a number of quotes form yours truly.
SciStarter profiles a lot of Citizen Science / Crowd-sourced Science projects. Interestingly, most are physical sciences, with only one project listed under psychology (interestingly, also a language project).
This is not a feature of SciStarter but more a feature of Citizen Science. The Scientific American database only lists two projects under "mind and brain" -- and I'm pretty sure they didn't even have that category last time I checked. This is interesting, because psychologists have been using the Internet to do research for a very long time -- probably longer than anyone else. But we've been very late to the Citizen Science party.
Not, of course, that you shouldn't want to participant in non-cognitive science projects. There are a bunch of great ones. I've personally mostly only done the ones at Zooniverse, but SciStarter lists hundreds.
