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.

The Candidates on Anything: A no-brainer!

Good one Jeff and what a sorry state of affairs on so many fronts.

When I look at the speed of my internet services, compared with a few years ago, it’s clear that that the packets flow at a reduced rate. As soon as it became apparent that different deals would be offered, basic through several packets to elite with at&t, I suspected that the basic folks, all the early adopters, would be encouraged to move up by a strangle hold placed on their existing packets rate of speed.

This is good for a laugh despite the fact that it points to such dire circumstances:

I have had time to review what’s out there and have come to the conclusion that regardless of the propaganda, from both candidates, the more crucial element is their respective approach to the myriad other issues covering more than just technology.

This article makes it look like a photo finish:

The question might be, does age and technology usage, or not, really matter?

What tips the scale for me is the unprecedented use of the internet by Obama, both for the incredible fundraising efforts and effective communication with a generation of tech users.

After watching last nights debate, she was in NY the other day and could see the Russian tea room from her hotel window, I wish I had access to the bunker’s that where scattered all over back yards in the neighborhood I grew up in. In the late 50’s in Middle England many built such bunkers just in case!

McCain doesn't use email????

That does it. I am no longer an undecided. Oh wait, my opinion doesn't matter, seeing as I am not a citizen :).

But seriously... one campaign is running on text messages, and the other has a candidate who doesn't use email?? there's some serious cognitive dissonance for you. Kinda like choosing between a modern doctor and a medieval barber doubling as surgeon.

Great article, I think you covered everything there. . . I would say freelancing is quite hard especially if you are not used to working on your own, can be quite hard to motivate yourself also. . . we all know what it is like to stare at the monitor.
