Brightidea Announces Fall 2014 Platform Release
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

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

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.

A Call for Crowdsourcing in Brazil's Public Sector

Brazil is in the midst of an economic boom, byproducts of which include falling unemployment rates, less people below the poverty line, improved welfare packages and empowered consumers. As more money circulates, the country's economic situation continues to improve — and this the upward trend looks set to continue.

With an economic backdrop that has raised confidence levels, an opportunity prevails for those companies that are ready and willing to innovate and push the boundaries of creative design to new levels. Having survived the brutal economic conditions of recent times, there is a new sense of optimism among Brazilian companies for the first time since 2008 as they face their foreign competitors.

One of the advantages purported by the forgers of the new crowdsourcing economy is the cost advantage provided by greater levels of savings through labor arbitrage. Digital workers are becoming increasingly connected, stocking the armory that drives this new global workforce. The crowdsourcing model provides cost savings tied to manpower, research and development for foreign companies — among many other benefits — but here in Brazil, where the economy is booming, the scenario is slightly different. Concern for cost reduction exists, obviously, but Brazilian companies that incorporate crowdsourcing practices in their business model do so largely because those practices project a higher value throughout the company's business model, connecting all the market players in an integrated manner beneficial to the company.
