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.

I want to take a brief break from Gannett coverage (I'm under slept, having stayed up half the night watching Montana returns roll in.) Last week I appeared in my first virtual Q&A, at a Wired event in our new Second Life digs. The topic, naturally, was crowdsourcing in general and how Linden Lab – the company behind SL – has used crowdsourcing to great advantage. It was great fun, and the audience asked several thoughtful questions, such as Mordant Kepler, who wondered whether minimum wage laws should apply in crowdsourcing. My reply, somewhat abbreviated:

I think there are policy frameworks that we haven't begun to work out. If I'm a turker in Bangladesh, what's my minimum wage? If it's in US dollars and the requesting company is incorporated here, I think the answer would be our minimum wage, but I'm not even sure you could enforce minimum wage on piecework like that, which explains why some people are -- rightfully -- worried about crowdsourcing's implications.

If you are willing to buy a house, you will have to receive the loan. Moreover, my brother all the time takes a short term loan, which seems to be the most firm.
