Crowdsourcing: A Definition

  • I like to use two definitions for crowdsourcing:

    The White Paper Version: Crowdsourcing is the act of taking a job traditionally performed by a designated agent (usually an employee) and outsourcing it to an undefined, generally large group of people in the form of an open call.

    The Soundbyte Version: The application of Open Source principles to fields outside of software.

The Rise of Crowdsourcing

  • Read the original article about crowdsourcing, published in the June, 2006 issue of Wired Magazine.

Without question, this is a seachange in journalism.

It used to be that the MSM strutters were the High Priests of Information and News, but now they're the chumps who push agendas, ala Dan Rather Not Speak the Truth.

They now bend the knee to our populist grassroots whip. They now bow in subjection to the UserProducer. They are groveling and begging us to help them investigate and report.

Is this like the Pentagon asking armed hillbillies to guard their pavilion?

Like Donald Trump imploring you for a few bucks to buy a cup of Starbucks?

Here we come in our flame-proof blogger pajamas: telling the MSM what's going on. How sweet the revenge tastes on my fangs and lips.

See Joi Ito's relevant comments on: "Blurred boundaries between amateur and pro" here: http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/fl20061105x1.html

btw: The title of this Japan Times article is very weird as the videoclips demonstrate the opposite vibe.

If you'd make a guy content, will not add to his possessions but subtract from his needs. Did you concur with me?
