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.

between "Up" votes and "Down" votes—Thus F451 received 611 Ups and 253 Downs for a total of 358 votes). 1984 came in close behind with 348 votes. These three books dominated the leaderboard, as they had from almost the first minutes we opened voting. This reveals something about social media and online voting, where a considerable advantage goes to those books nominated early in the process. The mechanics behind the final round of voting next week won't have this bias.

The books to come in fourth and fifth place were Slaughterhouse

fourth and fifth place were Slaughterhouse Five and Catch 22, with 113 and 104 votes respectively. The One Book, One Twitter board will be adding four more titles to this list to make a slate of ten finalists. We'll be voting on these books for a few weeks starting on April 12. Whatever book wins that is the book we'll read. Woo Hoo!

A bunch of entries deserve honorable mention: Someone suggested "Books about Twitter," which received 82 "Good God, No!" votes and exactly one "Yes" vote. A few other titles managed to pick up considerable steam, but someone—script kiddies, I know you're out there—seems to have marshalled enough "no" votes to keep them out of the final count
