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.

Hi Jeff-

Thank you so much for this excerpt... I just went to BKS to reserve a copy of your book.

Funny- it struck me after I spoke with you on the phone that I'd actually already been crowdsourcing within the crowd of other Marketocracy participants for quite some time.

The results have been outstanding. Despite having no criteria to join, and despite accepting any pick made, overall we've beaten every index every year since 2004 with the exception of a .57% loss to the DOW in 2006. Cumulatively, we're at a four-and-a-half year total gain of 61.67%, with the NAZ & S&P at about 23%, and the DOW at about 18%.

Many of the individual picks (dhorn's 2004 choice EZPW, for one) have been outstanding gainers in my real-money accounts.

The company effectively became a prediction market with important components of a crowdcasting network. “The reason diversity trumps ability in a problem-solving scenario is because you can always throw the idiots off the bus,” says Page. In the case of Marketocracy, by following the Master’s 100 too closely, they couldn’t exercise that option. Page explains, “Picking stocks is part prediction and part problem-solving, so Marketocracy’s approach makes a lot of sense.”
