Nokia call on the crowd to remake its iconic ringtone

When you hold the lofty position of being the number one manufacturer of both mobile phone handsets and smartphones with a 13 and 17 point lead respectively in market share, you might think “why change a winning formula”;  however for Nokia, innovation is the DNA not just part of it! Nokia maintains a healthy lead in the rankings charts for 2010 as reported by both IDC and Strategy Analytics however with Samsung’s annual sales growth trumping Nokia’s by a factor of over four times, Nokia’s number one position is threatened unless it can improve its annual sales growth figures.

One recent attempt to do this was to make an open call for innovation, inviting, for the first time, the crowd to create a new version of its iconic ringtone, which has been its trademark since 1994.

In partnership, Nokia selected the small Finnish startup, AudioDraft which was founded in July 2010. AudioDraft specializes in contest based challenges that crowdsource music and sound design. The contest attracted thousands of talented sound designers and music producers from all over the world, with Nokia paying $ 10,000 for the winner. The new ringtone will be available on some 100 million devices and will be heard over 1 billion times a day.

CloudFactory, a Cloud Labor platform for creating work opportunities for people in developing nations
Cloud Labor

Developed by two idealistic Canadians and two open-minded Americans, the Cloud Labor platform CloudFactory, lauched this week in San Francisco, is an ambitious project based in Kathmandu, Nepal, with an objective to bring new opportunities of work to people in developing countries to help fight poverty.

Crowdsourcing.org had the opportunity to interview Tom Puskarich, VP Business Development of CloudFactory while he was in San Francisco for the launch of the platform at TechCrunch's Disrupt conference. We learned that CloudFactory is following a similar model to established providers such as CrowdFlower, Microtask and others. CloudFactory allows businesses to design virtual assembly lines for all types of digital work such as inputting data from handwritten forms, extracting data from images, flagging bad content and categorizing things. However, “The main difference between CloudFactory and its competitors is its free self-serve toolset that allows users to set-up their own workflows” Tom Puskarich, VP Business Development, informed us.
