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.

Once again, congrats on the English version of your book, the US version’s cover, particularly the 3D, raised marbles, get my vote though.

A “breathlessly enthusiastic roll call” doesn’t sound like much of a criticism to me Jeff and calling your book “the product of a well-connected and talented journalist. It is carefully researched and crisply written,” certainly makes up for any tinge of any even mildly critical remarks!

Take plenty of Dollars with Jeff, fish and chips are now closer to $15 and that’s without the mushy peas and pot of tea and they are no longer served wrapped in a news paper cone.

I am not sure if being sandwiched between “heavy metal in Baghdad” is a good thing or not. It should be interesting though and will probably draw a younger crowd, no pun intended!
