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.

Haiti's earthquake news depressed all around the globe. But no one can stop such natural calamities.

Crowdsourcing has been a great help in keeping oneself updated and getting ones problems resolved fast due to its benefits.

I REALLY need your help ASAP.
You need to actively do something which is absolutely immediate and effective to stop crime against me.
You need to be 'the person' and it has to be now.
Pls see my drama at mariamorta.wordpress.com or hubpages.com/profile/MARIAMORTA and rush to get me rid of slavery, torture, brain washing, massive material and intellectual theft, genitalia mutilation, control by third parties, and etc.
You have no idea about what AU, USA, and others, the governments, have been able to do, not only to me, since end of 2001. See in my websites and will be shocked. Rush, for ten years ago.
