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.

Hey there shooter --

An FYI: the link in your BIO ( for your homepage,, is missing the prefix so its treating it as a relative rather than absolute URL.

just tryin' to help a brotha out and make the linking system get ya some diaper money from that upcoming book of yours.

I think the newsvine / assignment zero concepts make up a great way for the average working stiff to get some creativity into their day. Personally, I think the world is a much more exciting place knowing that people of different backgrounds and perspectives are coming together for projects of this sort....BUT that may just be the PMP in me speaking up.

sign me up for some ninja sleuth journalism - i'm ready.

cheers ...

As for the content, I am not a control freak. I do not wear Birkenstocks. I do not tsk-tsk either. I have become fatigued with people accusing me of "hand wringing." Hand wringing seems to be the de rigueur put-down of the day to the point that it has become a cliche.
