In this exclusive series on Crowdsourcing.org, he recalls those early days and the efforts that have since begun to blossom in the form of the JOBS Act. In the second half of the series, he also gives us an inside look at the fanatical devotion of some of crowdfunding's true believers.

CloudFactory, a Cloud Labor platform for creating work opportunities for people in developing nations
Cloud Labor

Developed by two idealistic Canadians and two open-minded Americans, the Cloud Labor platform CloudFactory, lauched this week in San Francisco, is an ambitious project based in Kathmandu, Nepal, with an objective to bring new opportunities of work to people in developing countries to help fight poverty.

Crowdsourcing.org had the opportunity to interview Tom Puskarich, VP Business Development of CloudFactory while he was in San Francisco for the launch of the platform at TechCrunch's Disrupt conference. We learned that CloudFactory is following a similar model to established providers such as CrowdFlower, Microtask and others. CloudFactory allows businesses to design virtual assembly lines for all types of digital work such as inputting data from handwritten forms, extracting data from images, flagging bad content and categorizing things. However, “The main difference between CloudFactory and its competitors is its free self-serve toolset that allows users to set-up their own workflows” Tom Puskarich, VP Business Development, informed us.

A Lot Can Be Achieved in a Year on the Internet!
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

Monday, September 26 is going to be a big day for us at Crowdsourcing.org and, of course, for all our daily visitors. As we approach the first anniversary of the launch of the site we launched at CrowdConf2010 on October 4 last year looking back over the year we have acheived a lot and had a great first year, establishing a great following and earning the respect of many people we admire and many we don't yet know.

I’ve been a little quiet on the blogging front, but it hasn’t been because I took the summer off! Apart from my relocation from Dallas back to L.A. (how pleased am I about that!), trips to give presentations at various crowdsourcing conferences in Europe and a trip to São Paulo in August to present at the first Latin American conference on Crowdsourcing, we have been really busy working on a number of important initiatives.

Tomorrow mid-morning Pacific Time, all being well, we have an exciting new site to unveil. We have given the site a massive overhaul and we hope everyone likes it – we think you will! Over the next few weeks we will be introducing a range of additional features including live chat, featured videos and great new whiz-bang technology for a whole bunch of user-friendly options such as social sign-up, log-in, share and comments, etc.

Another exciting initiative we are also launching tomorrow is the first comprehensive industry survey that will allow us, and others that get access to the data, to answer many of the questions we have all been dying to address
questions such as how big is the industry, how fast is it growing, how much work is being performed, what’s its nature and what money is being spent.

Apple's iPhone 4S uses Crowdsourcing
Distributed Knowledge

The use of the term crowd-sourced as part of the in-phone display text on the iPhone 4S marks another landmark event in the adoption of the term crowdsourcing.

I’ve been taking note of any signs that give rise to the term crowdsourcing entering the mainstream lexicon. One interesting indicator is the statistics on the number of monthly searches of the term. Over the last twelve months the number of global monthly searches has nearly doubled from just over 60,000 a month to 110,000 month, today.

If you look at the peaks, not surprisingly, they coincide with news items that either report the use of crowdsourcing by big companies (i.e. [B] Microsoft) or by articles on crowdsourcing by big publications (i.e. [A] – Information Week, [D] – Business Week,  [G] – Forbes).
