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, where do I nominate? Here? Ok: "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy, mainly because I haven't read it yet but it seems that I should :)


yes, if you could include the voting link, that would be helpful, as I am forwarding this to people outside the twittersphere in the hopes of engaging them.

Jeff - that certainly sounds like a plan :)

What is the geo representation of the folks who have voted so far? Could help decide on expanding coverage for this amazing project.

And, thanks for the update.

Keep sharing!!

Are you going to try and merge duplicates? I've seen several suggestions for "The Art of Racing in the Rain" (which I've never heard of) on, but they're each only catching a few votes.


Sounds fair and reasonable to me ... can't wait to start this! Guess I've got a couple weeks to finish the book I'm currently reading.

When an employee is classified as exempt, is calling in to provide a status update to a manager and other co-workers qualify as a partial workday for an exempt employee? With partial workdays it appears that pay cannot be docked (but vacation time can be deducted), is this correct?
