What crazy things can you do in Brazil with the crowd?
Crowdfunding, Distributed Knowledge

On Monday, in a packed convention hall in Sao Paulo, Brazil, over three hundred practitioners, eager entrepreneurs, and curious bystanders’, watched, listened and scribbled intensely as the 1st International Conference on Crowdsourcing, Communities and Co-creation got underway. The full agenda accommodated a line-up of crowdsourcing professionals who presented their business models, provided real-world examples and shared insights into the must-knows and the dos and don’ts of crowdsourcing. 

The conference itself was the idea of Shaun Abrahamson and Marina Miranda from Mutopo when a few months ago, following calls for assistance and participation, Marina’s large network of connections in Brazil, the US and in Europe started to quickly produce: sponsors, a venue, speakers and then ticket sales.

Crowdsourcing and crowdfunding have been increasingly on the agenda in Brazil over the last twelve months and this was Brazil’s first chance to gather in one place to meet face-to-face to look for the answers to the one question that appeared to capture it all -- the central issue -- “what crazy things can you do in Brazil with the crowd?” As Shaun Abrahamson opened the conference he quote Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, “While the last five years have been about getting connected, the next 5 years are going to be about all the crazy things you can do now that all those people are connected”. There seems to be a lot of crazy things you can do, for sure!

TheSkyNet will use the power of the crowd on its star trek
Distributed Knowledge

When the unforgettable James T. Kirk, captain of the starship USS Enterprise, recorded his last Captain’s Log, on StarDate 9525.1 it included an optimistic forecast:

“This ship, and her history, will shortly become the care of another crew. To them, and their posterity will we commit our future. They will continue the voyages we have begun, and journey to all the undiscovered countries, boldly going where no man, ... where no one has gone before."

Today, Tuesday 13 September, in Australia, 42 years after the final episode of the original Star Trek, a community computing science initiative was kicked-off to help discover the hidden Universe; it was officially launched in Curtin University. TheSkyNet project is a citizen science initiative that will be powered by members of the public contributing their spare computing power to the processing of radio astronomy data.

Ericsson Recruits a Crowdsourced Army of Programmers
Open Innovation

Using a crowdsourced army of programmers instead of a traditional employed workforce, Ericsson’s Innovation Center in Brazil broke away from the traditions of the office environment and managed to reduce its cost of software production by 30%.

Clearly, this formula yielded positive results — Ericsson’s headquarters in Sweden is planning to implement this solution in other its research centers across the globe. Ericsson expanded the Center this year to meet all demands for customization and development of Latin America and the Caribbean, a sign that the company plans to pursue a similar strategy worldwide.
