New Zealand Crowdsourcing New Flag Design
Crowd Creativity

New Zealand sports a rather unoriginal flag design that incorporates the UK’s Union Jack flag on a navy background, with four stars of the Southern Cross to the right. Now, the former British colony is deciding whether it should stand pat with its current design, or make a change.

How to Kickstart Your Competitive Advantage With a Virtual Workforce
Cloud Labor, Tools

Thanks to social media and online communications tools, it’s become easy to not only reach potential workers anywhere in the world, but to also send them disaggregated microtasks that take a relatively short period of time to complete. Each one may not amount to much; but when done at scale, these microtasks allow firms to complete intensive jobs much faster than they would be able to do without the crowd’s help. CrowdSource, a platform that focuses on crowdsourced content and data solutions, recently put out a white paper discussing the strengths of crowdsourcing, and what kinds of jobs are best suited to be broken down and completed by the crowd.

Crowdfunding

A recent report found that women are not making use of crowdfunding as much as they can be.

To find out how the platform got its start and what it hopes to achieve, we sent over a few questions for co-founder Genie Webb, who was kind enough to provide the answers below.
