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.

Very interesting post Jeff, the journey from Asset to InnoCentive and back really defines just how solutions can be unexpectedly realized and powered by relationships that follow no immediately recognizable or traditional template.

The solution grooves that are traditionally imprinted within the fabric of culture give little hope of such events.

That thought leads me to the conclusion that individual biographies and the rise of technologies, that often form the vessels for such ad hock relationships, must surely be the life blood for solution based relationships.

As much as one would hope for such solutions to arise out of traditional relationships, unless pumped upright with endless amounts of financing, the reality is that the creative solutions might first be seeded by blossoming needs of an individual or community impulse that can not find solutions within the context of already placed relationship templates.

Crowdsourcing, in my mind, is a wonderful example of such a cultural force realized. I focus here not upon the term crowdsourcing but the actual results of the phenomena.

I had got a dream to make my own company, nevertheless I did not have enough amount of cash to do this. Thank goodness my close colleague told to use the mortgage loans. Thence I took the student loan and made real my dream.

Well, a great post, and thanks to you I can point out about something that is very important and not given as much thought and respect as it should have - using technology and internet for good, non-profit, social uses, with a little investment on programming and a great investment on marketing by the mass itself. Let's take this path from now on.

I'd be interested in hearing. The TOS seems rather clear that it is not unless expressly approved by Amazon. I guess if the library got it in writing then they would be ok.

apan and South Korea in 2002 during the World Cup soccer, other sports brand to seize this rare opportunity to pay big bucks to get official sponsorship, sign a contract with the big stars. PUMA avoid the such en masse common that lack of features, they signed a sponsorship contract with the Jamaica, and Tunisia in African teams. On one hand, such outstanding African teams, the appearance rate is high, and expenditure was lower than the big-name teams a lot; On the other hand, Jamaica and Tunisia character suits PUMA brand because sport is not just blood, sweat and tears, but also endless fun.

The Sharks currently use "Seek & Destroy" by Metallica as their entrance song.
Any time the Sharks go on the power play, the Jaws theme song is played while the fans do "The Chomp," extending their arms in front and moving them up and down to form a chomping jaw. The song played after each goal is an instrumental version of "Rock and Roll Part 2" by Gary Glitter.
