So this is the future - not wages, but "prizes" ?

Have YouGov taken over Microsoft ?

Am I alone in finding the "bug bounty" culture that appears to have developed a tad ... problematic ? How long before we see it applied to our own jobs ? And then in the wider world. Imagine if Sainsburys were able to avoid paying wages, but offer a "bounty" to the first person to get a shelf stacked ? Meaning (here's the genius bit) they actually get all shelves stacked (or 99% stacked) but only have to pay for one person.
