140story.com – A crowd-sourced and crowd-translated novel
Cloud Labor, Crowd Creativity, Distributed Knowledge

Having created the first novel crowdsourced via Twitter, it was only time before the crowd were to be enlisted once more, this time to translate the novel into English, Swedish, Spanish, German & French.

The story began back in the summer of 2010 when a team of five ambitious folk in Finland decided to experiment with social media, looking for new ways to engage the crowd. Having had enough of growing digital carrots, they decided to see if they could crowdsource a novel. Their mission was to show what can be achieved by the power of crowds using social media and to allow random people the opportunity to reveal their inner authors.

The co-creation process started when Finnish author Mikko Karppi published the opening of the story providing no further direction for the plot. How it was going to unfold, and how the story was going to end was to be left for the crowd to decide. They were sure that the crowd would know better.

Investing in the Crowd: VCs Inject $280M into Crowdsourcing Platforms in 2011
Crowdfunding

The crowdsourcing and crowdfunding industry is picking up momentum at an exceptional rate. Validity of the models involved is now grounded in the ever-increasing size of the participatory crowd, the scale of the capital networks involved, and the unique value delivered to customers, communities, and investors alike. Astute expansion-stage venture firms are now decisively backing and further fuelling explosive high-growth in crowd-driven companies. With more than $280 million invested in 35 different crowdsourcing and crowdfunding platforms during 2011 — an average investment of $8 million per funding round — it is clear that the industry’s probationary period is over.
