Can DHL Crowdsource Package Delivery?
Really cool crowdsourcing apps to get you to work on time!

Finding the best route to the office, home or the airport was once the responsibility of fixed GPS devices, but fortunately for Smartphone owners, that’s no longer the case. The fact of the matter is GPS manufacturers have utilized the power of the crowd to refine their traffic data for years now, but some companies and start-ups are simply outmatching these partially crowdsourced-methods and therefore they are on their way to replacing the traditional manufacturers that are heavily invested in ?last-generation devices.

The Crowdfunder – an “adVenture Capitalist”
Crowdfunding, Distributed Knowledge, Tools

Last week’s blogpost “Equity or Debt?” the Next step in Crowdfunding highlighted the three fundamental forms of crowdfunding platforms: 


  1. Crowdfunding as a method for sponsorship with a non-financial return 
  2. Debt-crowdfunding with a financial return (P2P-lending) 
  3. Equity based crowdfunding with a potential financial return and ownership
 
Whether you are a crowdfunder, an adVenture Capitalist, or if you have an initiative or you are an entrepreneur looking to raise money, it’s critical to have a good understanding of the models and the different types of initiatives they can support.

Crowdsource carefully or heads could roll!
Crowd Creativity, Distributed Knowledge

It’s a blogosphere out there. And in trying to absorb all the talking-head commentary about the use of Facebook and Twitter in fomenting and organizing current Middle Eastern upheavals, at least Maureen Dowd’s column in The New York Times got something right:

We see instantaneous digital communication as a weapon against oppression and, in the hands of tyrants who tap into its power, as a weapon for oppression.

A weapon. Wonder about “crowd-sourcing a revolution” is not only old tape, it turns the mechanism into the social and political solution. We have identified it as the means, the method of bringing disenfranchised or angry people together.

Are Peer-to-Peer Lending And Crowdfunding The New Form of Online Dating?
Crowdfunding, Distributed Knowledge

About 10 years ago, no one believed that going online to find a husband or wife would be something normal, acceptable (not to mention profitable!!). Fast forward 10 years later and online date is no longer a fad but very much a normal thing, almost like ordering a skinny, flat white latte!!

Could Peer to Peer lending and Crowdfunding follow the same route in the next few years? i.e. move from a revolution to being mainstream methods of raising capital for new businesses? While both crowdfunding  and peer-to-peer lending are ways to secure capital online, the two are different from one another and the aspects of each option should be considered carefully.

Extending Open Innovation to Open Government: a Roadmap for New Opportunities in Citizensourcing
Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

Terms, such as co-creation, mass customization, interactive value creation, or open innovation  represent the increasing success of new (predominantly Internet-based) practices and give evidence that the general public can constitute a source of enhanced innovation.

In many countries the public sector has been seeking to reform itself, anyway. Do the open innovation methods, broadly understood provide a way? In this post, Dennis Hilgers and Frank Piller look at the wider benefits of an open public service and raise some of the most important issues.

Better Crowdsourcing through Automated Methods for Quality Control
Crowdfunding of Small Entrepreneurial Ventures

It has been argued that funding was particularly difficult to obtain for small businesses in respect of their size and lack of available historical data creating information asymmetry for potential investors. Hence, traditional financing methods like bank loans, business angels or VCs are out of reach for these small companies. Moreover, bootstrapping does not allow businesses to grow fast due to its focus on cash generation, often at the expense of maximizing value creation. As a result, crowdfunding can become a viable fundraising method obtainable for small entrepreneurial companies or project-based initiatives.

Four Reasons Organizations Should Crowdsource Their Translations
Tools

Crowdsourcing has been firmly established as a valid and often preferable method for reaching organizational goals and accomplishing more with the same dollars. However, while crowdsourcing works very well for some problems, it may not be a viable solution for others. As the tools become available to crowdsource translation projects, it’s important to evaluate why organizations crowdsource in general and if those criteria are a good fit for crowdsourced translation initiatives.

 

In this article Calvin Scharffs addresses four benefits organizations receive from crowdsourcing in general: Cost savings,  Increased Speed / Distributing Risk, Increased efficiencies and Brand involvement and evaluate if those benefits transfer effectively to translation projects.
