e-Ticket et Crowd funding Les plateformes de billeterie peuvent s'avérer très utiles dans les événements Crowd sourcés. Elles permettent de générer des billets électroniques en échange d'une commission qui peut être fixe ou proportionnelle aux prix du billet. Certaines plateformes (ex : Weezevent) sont également capable de délivrer gratuitement des invitations. Outre l'utilisation classique du billet, il ne faut pas hésiter à le détourner de sa fonction d'origine, par exemple : organiser les castingsdiffuser des informations à un nombre fixé de personnesrecevoir des fonds diminués de frais financiers minimes (2,5% pour Weezevent)évaluer le nombre de personnes ayant vu un code promotionnelobtenir une liste d'adresses électroniques qualifiéesetc. La billetterie peut-être utilisée couplée à une plateforme de Crowd funding qui reconnait, sur preuve, les financements dont elle n'a pas assuré le transit. Weezevent gère également un réseau d'affiliation.

Peerbackers (us) P2P-Banking.com - P2P Lending News and Peer to Peer Microfinance The UK government decided today that the annual ISA allowance (preferential tax treatment) will be increased from 11,520 to 15,000 GBP. The increased limit will apply to a single ISA, called the New Isa or NISA, which combines the current cash and stocks & shares wrappers. Under the new regime, individuals will be able to invest the whole amount in cash, compared to present rules where only half of the 11,520 GBP can be invested in cash and the rest in stocks and shares. Current Isa savings will also enjoy the new flexibility. The increased limit will come into force on July 1st. Osborne said: “We will make Isas simpler by merging the cash and stocks Isas to create a single new Isa. In addition, the Government intends to allow p2p loans to be held within a NISA and will consult on how to implement this later this year. Zopa CEO Giles Andrews says: “Peer-to-peer ISAs are the most exciting thing to happen to the industry since Zopa launched back in 2005. (Source: HM Treasury, Budget 2014)

Sharing Information Corrupts Wisdom of Crowds | Wired Science When people can learn what others think, the wisdom of crowds may veer towards ignorance. In a new study of crowd wisdom — the statistical phenomenon by which individual biases cancel each other out, distilling hundreds or thousands of individual guesses into uncannily accurate average answers — researchers told test participants about their peers’ guesses. As a result, their group insight went awry. “Although groups are initially ‘wise,’ knowledge about estimates of others narrows the diversity of opinions to such an extent that it undermines” collective wisdom, wrote researchers led by mathematician Jan Lorenz and sociologist Heiko Rahut of Switzerland’s ETH Zurich, in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on May 16. The effect — perhaps better described as the accuracy of crowds, since it best applies to questions involving quantifiable estimates — has been described for decades, beginning with Francis Galton‘s 1907 account of fairgoers guessing an ox’s weight.
