Reddit Drops the Filter and Draws Audiences
Jeff Howe Welcomes the Crowd
Distributed Knowledge

I coined the term crowdsourcing five years ago in a June 2006 article in Wired magazine. I started my blog the same day the article went live on Wired's site, and for the next three years I covered the rise of crowdsourcing in everything from radiology to journalism to bird watching. When I was writing my book, How the Power of the Crowd is Driving the Future of Business, I used the blog to collect edits and feedback from, well, the crowd.

After three years of ceaseless writing and researching on the subject it was time to move on--literally and figuratively. In late 2009 I became a Nieman Fellow at Harvard, and relocated my family to Cambridge. In the last two years I've studied subjects ranging from US intellectual history to transmedia storytelling to the connection between social capital and social networks. I started teaching--one course each at Harvard, Boston University, and Northeastern University--and teamed up with the Atlantic.com to create the largest book club in human history. And in September I'll begin a tenure-track position in the journalism department at Northeastern University.

And through all this crowdsourcing was never far from my mind. I've often said I could happily spend the next 30 years of my life studying the emergence of such new forms of economic production as crowdsourcing. What I learned in the last two years is that I might not have a choice: Everything I studied, everything I taught, and everything I read was filtered through the formative lens of that pervasive concept of online collaboration.

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.

Crowdsourcing and Social Media: where is the quality?
document Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

Quality control is necessary in all walks of life and crowdsourcing is no different. This will ensure that parameters are used to filter out information that could be inaccurate or misleading.

Crowdsourcing and Social Media: where is the quality?
The case for and against crowdsourcing (part 2)

In the first part of this article I described which types of crowdsourcing currently exist and the benefits of crowdsourcing. In part two, I now explore some of the drawbacks of crowdsourcing.

 

There are a number of key issues to consider when conducting a crowdsourcing project that have the potential to materially impact the outcome. The potential drawbacks of crowdsourcing often stem from the fact that in crowdsourcing initiatives, online volunteers instead of companies own staff members are executing the work. The use of ‘outside’ workers can present some challenges which I'm going to explore accross the following areas to highlight the potential drawbacks of working with crowds.
