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.

OTeN : Données publiques Image de l’article : © Kobes - L’OTeN a embrassé le sujet dès 2008 entre membres pour une action réelle en 2009 (Notre premier article). Les méthodes d’étude de l’OTeN s’appuient sur l’analyse des initiatives territoriales de façon à en extraire une grille de lecture, des facteurs clés de succès et, au final, des préconisations. Sur le sujet des données publiques, force est de constater que ces initiatives étaient absentes de l’horizon numérique des collectivités fin 2009 (ce sujet reste d’ailleurs encore absent pour un grand nombre d’entre elles). L’opportunité d’une étude n’a eu de sens qu’à compter de 2010, période où une dynamique a commencée à poindre. Voici donc arrivé à terme notre travail d’analyse, même si dans le cas présent il n’y a pas de terme compte tenu de l’évolution rapide du sujet. Une réflexion globale sur le sujet de la mise à disposition et la réutilisation des données publiques Une organisation horizontale et collective facteur d’accélération du mouvement

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

CrowdFlower solves problems ranging from product categorization to business lead verification to content creation. With its crowd of millions of contributors CrowdFlower claims to make up the world’s largest workforce. Friday, January 27th, 2012 In this episode of the Grow VC Everyone Funding Startups podcast, we are joined by David Bratvold, Founder & CEO of The Daily Crowdsource, to discuss the current state of the crowdsourcing and crowdfunding markets and the ways in which entrepreneurs and investors can utilize these tools to manage and finance their ventures. Tuesday, November 30th, 2010 In my recent interactions with the entrepreneur, as well as the investor community I have found one thing increasingly common these days.

About We believe in the equal and inherent value of all human life. We believe that a worldview bound by borders is outdated and that stopping injustice anywhere is the responsibility of humanity everywhere. We call this ethos Fourth Estate. Story Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army have been abducting, killing, and displacing civilians in East and central Africa since 1987. We first encountered these atrocities in northern Uganda in 2003 when we met a boy named Jacob who feared for his life and a woman named Jolly who had a vision for a better future. Invisible Children focuses exclusively on the LRA conflict through an integrated four-part model that addresses the problem in its entirety: immediate needs and long-term effects. We create films to document LRA atrocities, introduce new audiences to the conflict, and inspire global action. We mobilize massive groups of people to support and advance international efforts to end LRA atrocities. Protection
