    Great job guys - quite the ecosystem. Ideavibes / Fundchange / Engage4change - we are excited to be on the map. Thanks! /Paul/

    This is a beautiful info-graphic however it is not representative of landscape. Several companies (Tongal, TopCoder, etc...) are missing and there is inclusion of several freelance sites that many would argue are not at all crowdsourcing. Interested in seeing version 2.

    If you are a site owner and are missing off the Infographic then just let us know. We didn't choose to preclude sites - we have included all qualified sites that sent us their vector graphic logo.

    We have just updated the graphic (22 May '11) and made 22 changes. The info-graphic was not meant to capture all the 1,000+ crowdsourcing /crowdfunding sites but we would like to be sure to capture the most established and best of the younger companies.

    Thanks for your comments @mmartoccia (and bring back the laser beams!) Site owners send us a vector graphic of your logo if you want to be included - everyone else, please point out any that we have missed that you would like to see included.
