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.

Thanks for the mention of our campaign for Kiva, I thought you'd like to hear that the campaign has been growing steadily since that first 1000 hits. It's now had almost 40,000 video views and has more than doubled in membership over the last two days.

Thanks again for including Involver -- I hope we can continue to be part of the conversation as people look to tackle the problem of creating engaging, successful marketing campaigns.

We at Kiva are pleased with how effective the video campaign has been in spreading the word to a socially minded community -- so far it has had over 100,000 video views in less than a week!

This video campaign is a great way for us to continue our mission of alleviating poverty through a grassroots movement.

The cool long term affect of the Facebook app is the ability to track the power users, and find out who is participating by age, sex and geography. I suspect that the Facebook application will give them new demographics (younger) from what they are traditionally used to seeing via their website. Healthy Diet
