Tools

Ville Miettinen writes in once again, this time discussing the definition of crowdsourcing.

Crowdsourcing: amateur and proud
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

microtask_amateur_crowdsourcingOther than politicians and bankers, few types of people come in for as much abuse as amateurs. The word itself is practically an insult: a goal gets fumbled, an actor forgets his lines and what time is it? Amateur hour. Maybe it’s just me, but a guy who says he’s “an amateur” usually has a weird look in his eyes and talks a lot about steam trains.

Crowdsourced Design: It's a Crowd, Not a Committee
Crowd Creativity, Open Innovation

Companies who want to take advantage of crowdsourced design must fully commit to the model, and not hold it at arm's length or treat it as a fad. Crowdsourcing doesn't mean a dilution of ideas, or a homogenization. It can lead to inspired solutions to complex problems, as long as the crowd is allowed to be a crowd. After all, while horses may be sleek and elegant, sometimes a good hump is exactly what you need.

Take the Red Pill: Have You Already Been Gamified?
Distributed Knowledge

Part of the reason The Matrix burned such an indelible mark on the world’s imagination was because it seemed so plausible (apart from the moments when the script calls for Keanu Reeves to convey emotions other than confusion).
