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.

Jeff,

You are absolutely right to pass censure on the (purported) use of crowdsourcing to determine whether Forrester should give Owyang the ax. Besides being yet another example of social media abuse, they didn't even think to limit the vote to one per person.

It's pretty easy to guess where angry Mzinga employees will be doing for days.

All the best,
Rich
