140story.com – A crowd-sourced and crowd-translated novel
Cloud Labor, Crowd Creativity, Distributed Knowledge

Having created the first novel crowdsourced via Twitter, it was only time before the crowd were to be enlisted once more, this time to translate the novel into English, Swedish, Spanish, German & French.

The story began back in the summer of 2010 when a team of five ambitious folk in Finland decided to experiment with social media, looking for new ways to engage the crowd. Having had enough of growing digital carrots, they decided to see if they could crowdsource a novel. Their mission was to show what can be achieved by the power of crowds using social media and to allow random people the opportunity to reveal their inner authors.

The co-creation process started when Finnish author Mikko Karppi published the opening of the story providing no further direction for the plot. How it was going to unfold, and how the story was going to end was to be left for the crowd to decide. They were sure that the crowd would know better.

Investing in the Crowd: VCs Inject $280M into Crowdsourcing Platforms in 2011
Crowdfunding

The crowdsourcing and crowdfunding industry is picking up momentum at an exceptional rate. Validity of the models involved is now grounded in the ever-increasing size of the participatory crowd, the scale of the capital networks involved, and the unique value delivered to customers, communities, and investors alike. Astute expansion-stage venture firms are now decisively backing and further fuelling explosive high-growth in crowd-driven companies. With more than $280 million invested in 35 different crowdsourcing and crowdfunding platforms during 2011 — an average investment of $8 million per funding round — it is clear that the industry’s probationary period is over.

Seven Great Citizen Science Projects
Distributed Knowledge

Many scientific advancements in prior centuries can be attributed to a single individual or, at most, two to three people that have either independently or jointly innovated. However, advances in technology, global communications and social interactions have meant that the 21st century will be recognized as the century where mass collaboration changes the paradigm.


Citizen Science has become more of a differentiator as scientists are now turning to crowdsourcing to engage large communities of home scientists to help process vast amounts of data and to draw accurate conclusions from scientific research.

Brazil Opens Its Arms to Crowdfunding

In April of this year the Brazilian market witnessed the first merger of crowdfunding platforms. Multidão, which was launched that same day, and Catarse have joined together to form the group Comum: a nonprofit organization aiming to stimulate crowdfunding in all its possibilities, from an open network to building an ecosystem to create value based on collaboration. Currently, the two sites coexist, and share similar focuses yet soon they will have their own directions.

Opening the box of secrets to everyone

The most important thing in regarding Fiat’s development of the Fiat Mio (translated: ‘My Fiat”),  the world’s first ever open source car, is not the participation of the crowd itself, but the fact that, for the first time, the auto industry initiated the endeavor as an open source project and release it for everybody under the Creative Commons license. 


Fiat’s choice resulted in an open forum and marked a move to an approach for automobile production that is normally dominated by a culture of secrecy. How revolutionary and subversive was the adoption of this approach? The specification of the Mio is now available for anyone to see -- an open work that challenges the traditions of automobile manufacture.


So when the customer experience begins with the design of a car and not just the ownership experience and the role of the manufacturer becomes the orchestrator amongst customers and engineering teams, what impact does that have on the value of the brand in a world of open source knowledge? Is the brand enhanced or devalued?
