UN-SPIDER: Space-based information for Crowdsource Mapping
Distributed Knowledge

A UN initiative to boost emergency response by crowdsourced mapping and space technology

How to ensure that space-based information for crowdsource mapping benefits the emergency response community and disaster risk reduction?

This is the key question that specialists around the world will attempt to answer during the Expert Meeting being held in Geneva, this November, which is being held to coincide with the International Conference on Crisis Mapping.

The Expert Meeting is a fundamental part of the programme that is being organized by the United Nations Platform for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response (SPÍDER). The SPIDER program was established by the United Nations General Assembly with the mandate of ensuring that all countries, international and regional organizations, have access to space-based information, and to ensure they develop the capacity to use all types of space-based information to support the full, disaster management cycle. This includes the need to ensure that space-based information supports the crowdsource mapping efforts for the benefit of the disaster community.

The meeting will focus on exploring the different ways that the space technology community can collect, organize and provide greater access to its information and how it can better coordinate the communities through which it crowdsources information.

How CloudFactory Creates Digital Assembly Lines

Now that CloudFactory's digital assembly line model has been up and running for a few months — and with a new website — we followed up with Puskarich to see how it's going and how a factory in the cloud can help any business, even a pool cleaner in California.

A New Job: The Crowd Manager
Cloud Labor, Crowd Creativity, Open Innovation

With the advent of ever newer crowdsourcing services and mechanisms to develop altered standards of industrial and organizational structures, tasks are increasingly outsourced to the crowd, creating a completely new demand for interface functions between Crowd and Company.

Depending on the type of project, interface functions between the two should be a priority for both agencies and service providers, as well as enterprises (in the latter case, responsibility should initially fall on the Human Resources department).

In general, the service providers and crowdsourcing platforms themselves — of whatever kind, whether micro-tasks, creative or innovation — provide some degree support and advice, but often it’s not sufficient. A ‘Crowd Manager’ could help guide the crowd’s activity in the right direction.

Your Anti-Advisory Board: Leverage for Lean Start-ups (and Life)
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

I’ve been fascinated for some time by the leverage that comes from distributed expertise.
