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.

Just want to thank everyone for their comments and enthusiasm. Oh, and Christina, you'll love "John Adams." It's a very entertaining book.

Great book and great author. But don't forget to look for this at your local library - it's even cheaper than Amazon - it's free.


Have just ordered my copy from , it's going to have to wait until my uni deadlines have finished but I look forward to it!


I couldn't be more pleased that this selection won your competition. I've read Neil Gaiman's American Gods (actually, I listened to the audiobook superbly narrated by George Guidall) SEVEN TIMES! He is my all-time favorite author, and AG is my all-time favorite novel. Looking forward to reading it again...eighth time's the charm!


I'm looking forward to reading collectively while getting a sense of what other people got from the book at the same time. That's what you miss sometimes when reading. Great idea! PA

Neil Gaiman is my favourite writer and this is my favourite book of his. Even so, for some odd reason, I never actually finished it. This will be a great opportunity to do so, utilizing peer pressure

As fruit needs not only sunshine but cold nights and chilling showers to ripen it, so character needs not only joy but trial and difficulty to mellow it. Do you understand?

We have the ideal technology at our fingertips—Twitter. All we need Namely, that most of our relationships are determined by geography. On the Internet—where affinity is more powerful than geography—that's just not the case anymore.
