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.

Daren C. Brabham

Geez Jeff! 27 in one day is ridiculous. Sounds like Crown has a hell of a promotion team. Good luck. I'm chiming in on the 9am WNPR (Connecticut) show with you tomorrow, too.

...also, is your book tour bringing you to Salt Lake City at any point? Utah's got some good fly fishing, I hear. And I'll buy you lunch!

Jeff Howe

Awesome! Can't wait to catch up Daren, on-air or off ... I'm dying for the book to take me to Salt Lake, though it hasn't happened yet. Besides offering you as host it's home to the Provo River, one of the premier trout rivers in the country.

Your garrulity might indeed be stretched to the point of zombie like rhetoric as the twenty seventh interview draws near Jeff, fantastic opportunity to spread the word though.

Huge congratulations on reaching the day of publication, I hope all goes well and good luck!


Jeff Howe

@Daren: Were you on later in the segment? I missed you, buddy.
@Alan: I'm on interview 18 and I'm already sounding like a zombie. Thanks for kind wishes.

Daren C. Brabham

Yeah I'm in the third/last segment, at about 36 minutes in. After your segment (which was first), they did a segment with InnoCentive/Threadless, and then on to me and Douglas Rushkoff.

You can listen to it here:


Hey Jeff - big congrats.
Hope to see you chatting up the Canadian airwaves soon too!

c'est un peu comme naviguer dans une conjoncture économique difficile. Ici en forêt, la notion de hiérarchie a disparu et le partage des tâches et responsabilités s'effectue transversalement selon les disciplines sportives.
