Brazil Hosts The First International Conference on Crowdsourcing, Communities and Co-Creation
Crowdfunding, Distributed Knowledge

A small gathering congregated in São Paulo this weekend, ahead of the first International Conference on Crowdsourcing, being hosted tomorrow at the offices of one of Brazil’s largest telcos, Vivo. Having not long returned from Europe, presenting at CrowdConvention in Berlin in June, Europe’s first ever Crowdsourcing event [link], the privilege once more be part of a small quorum of crowdsourcing evangelists sharing their insights and experience to another group of inquisitive on-lookers and practitioners alike, this time south of the equator, is one that is not overlooked.

Under the enthusiastic and tenacious leadership of Marina Miranda, Managing Director of mutopo, Latin America the event is sure to be a success. Based out of mutopo’s São Paulo Office, Miranda has secured contributions from enterprise sponsors Telefônica, vivo, Microsoft BizSpark, Tecnisa and Boa Vista and raised ticket sales of ~300, great for a first event in a new market. Miranda has also been able to secure a notable cast of speakers representing both local companies and the international market.

mutopo’s core business is social production with a mission to help organizations think through crowdsourcing applications and to support the implementation of initiatives often involving the introduction of other crowdsourcing tool providers to help 

Brazil, having experienced a huge uptake over the last twelve months both in the use of crowdsourcing and crowdfunding and in terms of the number of new platforms launched, was ready and primed for its first event. The last twelve months have seen an increased adoption of crowdsourcing as a model to support open innovation, as a model for the production of creative works and for solutions requiring the crowd to collect and organize information.

Distributed Knowledge: It's a Wiki-World
Distributed Knowledge

Distributed Knowledge is the most discussed type of crowdsourcing, with the category’s top 15 platforms garnering nearly nine million social media mentions during the examined one-year timeframe. There’s a reason, after all, that the cocktail party definition of crowdsourcing is “Wikipedia, for everything.” Speaking of the community-authored encyclopedia, Wikipedia ranks highest in “absolute buzz” among Distributed Knowledge sites, racking up 2,216,124 total mentions. Social news aggregator Digg comes in a close second with 2,118,646 mentions, followed by social news site Reddit, the self-proclaimed “front page of the internet,” which garnered 1,747,223 mentions. Discovery engine StumbleUpon and TomTom, a GPS navigation company that crowdsources map info, round out the top five with 1,247,871 and 476,283 mentions respectively.
