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.

So, I think my Mod Podge filing cabinet turned out pretty good. And you know, it has helped me keep better organized. Maybe those irrational longings aren't so absurd after all. Maybe acquiring fancy stuff can solve all our problems. Who am I to say it can't? Later folks, I'm off to Barneys for a new clutch.

Nice concept. I will have to check it out. Afterwards, I will post more (my own review). So far, I am intrigued by the title "Crowdsourcing" It kind of just rolls of the tongue there.

I am intrigued by the Jelly bean analogy- extremely interesting. With the great feedback and stimulating excerpt from the Philadelphia Inquirer, I will definitely be picking this one up!

The opinion of each individual surely varies, you may think that it might be different from what it's supposed to be but apparently I think since its from Philadelphia inquirer that must be something.
