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?

Crowdsourcing and Professional Creatives CAN Co-exist Peacefully
Cloud Labor, Crowd Creativity

I’ve responded numerous times to the accusation/belief that crowdsourcing is somehow bastardizing creativity and putting professional creatives out of work so I wanted to share my thoughts in this blog post. First we have to acknowledge and understand there are many different types of crowdsourcing, so many that the term is being taxed and we might need to add to the nomenclature—maybe we can crowdsource a new name!

Brazil Hosts The First International Conference on Crowdsourcing, Communities and Co-Creation

A small gathering congregated in São Paulo this weekend, ahead of the first International Conference on Crowdsourcing, being hosted tomorrow at the offices of one of Brazil’s largest telcos, Vivo. Having not long returned from Europe, presenting at CrowdConvention in Berlin in June, Europe’s first ever Crowdsourcing event [link], the privilege once more be part of a small quorum of crowdsourcing evangelists sharing their insights and experience to another group of inquisitive on-lookers and practitioners alike, this time south of the equator, is one that is not overlooked.

Under the enthusiastic and tenacious leadership of Marina Miranda, Managing Director of mutopo, Latin America the event is sure to be a success. Based out of mutopo’s São Paulo Office, Miranda has secured contributions from enterprise sponsors Telefônica, vivo, Microsoft BizSpark, Tecnisa and Boa Vista and raised ticket sales of ~300, great for a first event in a new market. Miranda has also been able to secure a notable cast of speakers representing both local companies and the international market.

mutopo’s core business is social production with a mission to help organizations think through crowdsourcing applications and to support the implementation of initiatives often involving the introduction of other crowdsourcing tool providers to help 

Brazil, having experienced a huge uptake over the last twelve months both in the use of crowdsourcing and crowdfunding and in terms of the number of new platforms launched, was ready and primed for its first event. The last twelve months have seen an increased adoption of crowdsourcing as a model to support open innovation, as a model for the production of creative works and for solutions requiring the crowd to collect and organize information.
