CNN 'Open Stories' combine citizen journalism and professional reporting

Citizen journalism has been shaking up the news industry for years already, and CNN's iReport section is one of many efforts by traditional news outlets to include citizen voices. Earlier this month, however, CNN launched a new effort, dubbed “Open Stories”, that aims to take that concept a step further by crowdsourcing coverage of important topics through a combination of citizen and professional journalists.

Event Recap: Crowdsourcing Creativity with Heath Rudduck
Crowdsourced Ideas Make Participating in Government Cool Again

Harnessing the knowledge citizens and government employees share on social media applications in the public sector is a tricky challenge of the Government 2.0 era. Every day, thousands of citizens comment on government Facebook posts and blog entries or reshare information published on Twitter. Rarely has government had the opportunity to harvest innovative ideas and knowledge published through these channels. The main reason many agencies set up an organizational account is still “to be where the people are.” Recently, ‘open innovation’ platforms have started to address this disconnect, providing the public with the capability to interact and brainstorm alongside government officials. Simply put, these platforms make participating in government cool again.

Social media tools — such as blogs, Twitter and Facebook — are great channels to collect and encourage citizens to provide their insights on the issues and plans of government. Unfortunately, today’s standard social networking services do not have the capability to automatically extract and collate new knowledge or ideas from content that citizens are submitting through the existing commenting channels. In some cases, the sheer volume of comments makes proper analysis very difficult. The challenge is to extract new ideas or valuable insights from the influx of comments in a productive and efficient way. Open innovation platforms are designed to fill this gap.

Crowdsourcing Implications for Medium and Large Businesses
Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

Lisa Barone’s “7 Ways to Incorporate Crowdsourcing into Your Business” originally published by OutspokenMedia.com recently sparked quite a discussion amongst the online crowdsourcing community.  While Barone’s article covers a list of crowdsourcing applications for SMBs and start-ups, we should also consider the implications of crowdsourcing for bigger businesses and large enterprises. Crowdsourcing is definitely impacting a wide range of business models, but its use and applicability varies according to the size of the entity.

Uncle Sam Wants You – Crowdsourcing Now!
Distributed Knowledge

Crowdsourcing continues to gain momentum in the private sector.  From Microsoft’s Imagine CupLego’s Mindstorms and from GE’s $200m Ecoimagination Challenge to Sony’s Open Planet Ideas, we’ve seen countless examples of cost-efficient, time saving, and high yield crowdsourcing implementations. While crowdsourcing has gained traction in the private sector as a great vehicle for innovation and customer engagement, it is interesting to observe how the public sector is embracing crowdsourcing as an economically effective vehicle for engaging their constituents.

Tips for Maximizing Your Crowdsourcing Video Project: Dialogue Earth Video Crowdsourcing Contest (part 1)
Crowd Creativity, Distributed Knowledge

“Expert” opinion is highly sought after but, in the nascent industry of crowdsourcing, the bias of experience lies with the crowdsourcing platform owners and their teams and maybe the odd crowdsourcing consultancy. Credible “buy-side” views from the users’ of crowdsourcing are appreciated for their candor and objectivity.

In this post, the first of a two-part article, Crowdsourcing.org interviews Tom Masterman of Dialogue Earth about their decision to experiment with the crowdsourcing of educational science videos. In part 1 of this post, Masterman talks about the issues associated with the decision on whether or not to crowdsource a video project around the issues of control, quality, cost and time to set-up.
