Geocentric Crowdsourcing. Or how to put the hands-on the city
Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

Tom Erickson, designer and researcher in the Social Computing Group  at IBM's Watson Labs in New York, believes in crowdsourcing as a force capable to bring to citizens the ability to change the landscape of their cities and effectively create a more intelligent and livable environment. In his paper Geocentric Crowdsourcing and Smarter Cities: Enabling Urban Intelligence in Cities and Regions, Mr. Erickson explores the application of crowdsourcing to cities and regions – what he called “geocentric crowdsourcing.”

In his opinion, rather than people as passive subjects of increasingly ‘smart’ systems developed by tech companies, the vision is that smarter cities can offer a variety of ways for humans to act as first class participants, contributing their abilities to sense, analyze and act. Mr. Erickson focuses his research on designing systems that enable groups of people to interact coherently and productively: originally focused on online systems, the scope of his work has expanded to include real world environments ranging from rooms to cities.

Responding to some questions from Crowdsourcing.org, Mr. Erickson explained the concept of Geocentric Crowdsourcing and his practical application to the cities.

Local By Us: Crowdsourcing Local News
Distributed Knowledge

I am not a writer. I am not a journalist. I am a software developer and I built LocalByUs. I may not be a writer, but writing software is a lot like writing a book: you write it, refine it, and publish it. You don’t know if anyone will buy it, read it or like it. It’s not easy. 



Writing LocalByUs was challenging. At times during the last six months, I coded away like a madwoman, making quick progress on the site. At other times, I stared at the screen, blocked, stumped by impossible-to-solve issues — that, of course, seem simple in retrospect. Tough as it was, it was also fun. Working through all the problems, I have learned more in the last six months than I did in the last six years. But when I started, I did not know that building LocalByUs would be a worthwhile venture. So why build it?



I like my local newspaper. It hasn’t gone out of business… yet. Experts think the days of local newspapers are numbered. People search the web for the information they used to get from their local newspaper. Some newspapers have morphed into online local newspapers. AOL’s Patch is trying an online newspaper model at a big scale. By all reports, it is failing as well. But most of what the local newspaper reports — school sports, business news, police blotter, neighborhood association news, local politics and so on — could very well be crowdsourced.

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.
