Russia fosters web crowdsourcing projects

article Distributed Knowledge
Russia fosters web crowdsourcing projects
Summary
Despite the failure of the project in the Soviet Union, Russians are still utilizing the crowdsourcing method to this day.
Description
Current crowdsourcing projects in Russia include an upgradable mapping system on Yandex’s search engine, a campaign to clean up garbage in public areas, and a user-based travel portal that will help Russians discover wonderful sites in their own country. People’s Map on the Russian search engine Yandex, for example, is compiled and edited by Yandex users. Ordinary maps are sometimes not quite accurate. A map may show a road, but that road turns out to be no longer in use: It is closed off with cement blocks, but there is a bypass 3 miles away.
