Wired 14.06: The Rise of Crowdsourcing Remember outsourcing? Sending jobs to India and China is so 2003. The new pool of cheap labor: everyday people using their spare cycles to create content, solve problems, even do corporate R & D. By Jeff HowePage 1 of 4 next » 1. Story Tools Story Images Click thumbnails for full-size image: Claudia Menashe needed pictures of sick people. In October 2004, she ran across a stock photo collection by Mark Harmel, a freelance photographer living in Manhattan Beach, California. The National Health Museum has grand plans to occupy a spot on the National Mall in Washington by 2012, but for now it’s a fledgling institution with little money. After several weeks of back-and-forth, Menashe emailed Harmel to say that, regretfully, the deal was off. iStockphoto, which grew out of a free image-sharing exchange used by a group of graphic designers, had undercut Harmel by more than 99 percent. He can’t, of course. It took a while for Harmel to recognize what was happening.

Logo Design, Web Design and More. Design Done Differently | 99designs.com A Crowdsourced Hyperlocal City Guide, Coming To You Soon DavisWiki is a hard thing to describe. It’s a blog as a blog would be written by an entire community. It’s a virtual bulletin board that’s more comprehensive than Craigslist and Patch and Yelp combined. It’s simultaneously a history repository and a live ticker of today’s news (Community alert! The U.C. Davis Police Department is searching for a man suspected of trying to kidnap a young girl on campus.) UC Davis students launched the site eight years ago, before most people knew what a wiki was, when Wikipedia itself was still considered dodgy. “It’s the most comprehensive, hyperlocal thing ever,” says Philip Neustrom, who helped launch the site as a student and now works as the executive director of its universal version 2.0, LocalWiki. Thanks to a grant from the Knight News Challenge, LocalWiki has been further developing the software so that communities anywhere can replicate the idea. DavisWiki was an attempt to trap it somewhere in cyberspace.

7 Crowdsourced Projects That You Can Take Part In Right Now Without even realizing it, you may have been part of a crowdsourced project. Any beta invite to a new web startup is like a crowdsourced effort. Remember, Google Image Labeler, a game that improved Google Image Search? Well, that too was a crowdsourced effort and you probably never realized it. Crowdsourcing has grown into a movement and its improving our lives in ways we do not realize. Check out our infographic on crowdsourcing for a visual explanation. Dickens Journal Online The idea behind the project is to make the journals of Charles Dickens accessible to the blind and visually impaired by using text-to-speech technologies we have today. EteRNA The premise behind this crowdsourced science project could be that sometimes non-biologists and even the unscientific mind can see patterns that can escape the boffin. OpenStreetMap Think Google Maps, and then think about it being editable. reCAPTCHA The project was started by Carnegie Mellon University. Social Attire 7 Billion Ideas

Rose Holley's Blog - views and news on digital libraries and archives » Top 2000: een gruwel voor wie echt van crowdsourcing houdt De Top 2000 van 2010 zorgde de afgelopen week voor flinke meningsverschillen. Online was er een verbale strijd tussen voor- en tegenstanders gaande. Als je iets verder kijkt, blijkt het vrij simpel om de belangrijkste verschillen van mening terug te brengen naar de kern: hoe zet je het beste crowdsourcing in? De afgelopen dagen ging het spektakel weer los: de Top 2000 2010 was alom aanwezig op radio en televisie. Maar eigenlijk waren de online discussies over de lijst veel interessanter dan de muziek zelf. Met als hoogtepunten een stuk op de opiniepagina van de Volkskrant van Bertil Huzen en de reactie van “muziekprofessor” Leo Blokhuis erop. De wijsheid van de menigte Dus laten we met dat beetje theorie beginnen. Heterogeniteit. OK, laten we nu eens kijken naar de kritiek van Bertil Huzen. HeterogeniteitAllereerst vindt hij de lijst getuigen van “eenzijdige oubolligheid”. Zo biedt de lijst nauwelijks of geen ruimte aan “zwarte” muziek van bijv. De muziekprofessor
