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.

Dude

why would anyone intelligent want to read a book at the same time as the rest of the world? will they hold your hand too? this is madness, are we not independent thinkers at all, is there no one left? are you all letting these books come true -- idiots -- make your own society, you don't have to accept any of this.

I'd say Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five has it by a mile, his work is so sophisticated imho.

Love this idea. Was just talking to someone about how a yogi is working to get everyone to start doing yoga like they floss their teeth - everyday. Imagine the change.

My vote:

Heck, I'm just going to read--or re-read all of these. It's a good summer reading list

Not a bad idea, @whisler. The point is just to give people with nothing in common, something in common. Any one of these books is a wonderful read, in any season actually. Thanks for comments all.

For many thousands of years there has been the question, if we are alone in the universe. I think that there is enough evidence to probe that in fact even before our recorded history beings walked in this earth, many evidence show artifacts going back millions of years BC.

you could adjust the map so it's scaled according to population rather than geography, you could cancel out the effects of population sparseness. Phoenix, Los Angeles, and Atlanta are by far the largest cities in their areas, so it's no surprise they seem to dominate their geographic regions
