Forget static lists & Web 1.0 directories. The Daily Crowdsource has compiled the first, the largest, and the only definitive list of crowdsourcing companies . If your company isn’t listed, it doesn’t exist (If, however, we really did forget you, add your company & introduce yourself you shy bastard). We’ve compiled a list of over 150 companies actively providing crowdsource services to their clients. An additional 100 sites were rejected for not meeting our quality standards, which require the main operation to be crowdsourcing . Marketplaces, individual projects, or sites that collaborate without the use of a crowd made up the bulk of rejected sites.
[Crowd Leader] Jason Burrows: Back to Basics | The Daily Crowdsource - #1 site for crowdsourcing newsAny loyal follower of The Daily Crowdsource could not fail but notice the growing awareness and attention that crowdsourcing is now receiving, worldwide. Crowdsourcing seems to hold a fascination for us all, perhaps because of its democratising credentials and its belief that a good idea can come from anyone, anywhere. Over the last 12 months the promise of crowdsourcing’s power has started to be fulfilled; and looking ahead I think it’s not too extravagant a claim to see 2011 as being the year when crowdsourcing really ‘comes of age.’ However, before we all go tripping over one another in crowdsourcing’s version of a land grab, it might be worth stopping for a moment – with the festive season acting as an appropriate tinsel strewn time-out, and reflect on the fact that we are still debating over the basics of our art.

I’m really excited and honored to be speaking today at the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, TX, on a panel with Beth Kanter, Dave Neff, Holly Ross and Kari Saratovsky. We’ll be facilitating a conversation, more than doing a formal presentation, and will focus on the power of crowdsourcing (using our own case study from conducting the Social Media for Social Good case study competition) and the application of social media in nonprofit program delivery. If you’re here in Austin, do join us! If not, you can follow the conversation in real time on Twitter with the hashtag #crowdx . (We’ll put up more notes after the session, too!)
