Some crowdsourcing ideas and applications are good for a few extra bucks.MOst enterprising apps is the Park Circa for iPhone because finding parking in San Francisco is often like a quest to the heart of Mordor, this app simplifies matters by allowing fellow drivers to rent out their recently vacated parking spots.
There’s also Amazon’s Mechanical Turk which is a marketplace where businesses can get actual people to handle small and scalable tasks (transcription, image identification, data entry, etc.) on demand.
Or there’s the higher-stakes Quirky which is a social product development company.
As discussion continues on how to fairly compensate crowdsourced ideas and workers though, it’s nice that some companies are already beginning to try out different models.
