Groupon Endorses Crowdsourcing: A Win For The Crowdsourcing Industry
Cloud Labor

Groupon’s decision to award Clickworker.com a substantial contract to lead a large-scale, global translation and optimization project in a number of languages was a landmark award for the crowdsourcing industry. Clickworker’s win was a win for Clickworker and a win for the industry!  Not only was this award significant in terms of it being an endorsement of crowdsourcing as a competitive delivery model for outsourced services by the global Internet coupon giant, but the fact that Groupon went public with the announcement was in itself momentous!

Last week I spoke with Clickworker’s CEO, Wolfgang Kitza, to not only congratulate him on his company’s win but to also find out more about Clickworker’s strategy and to learn more about what was needed to support the adoption of crowdsourcing by global brands.

Why classifying the acts of crowdsourcing are so difficult
2011 Crowdsourcing Industry Survey
Distributed Knowledge

When I first wrote the Wired article, The Rise of Crowdsourcing, that coined that term, I could count the number of organizations using crowdsourcing on my hands and feet. Over the next several years crowdsourcing continued to grow: slowly, and organically, at first, then rapidly and egged on by an increasing number of books, articles, and the burgeoning hype around all things social media. By the time my book hit the stands in late 2008 the days when I could recount, from memory, all the important players in the crowdsourcing field were long gone. As I moved on to new projects, I wondered when someone would come along and conduct a comprehensive survey.


I'm happy to note the wait is over.

November 2011 “Crowdsourcing Industry Landscape” Infographic
Crowd Creativity, Crowdfunding, Distributed Knowledge

Crowdsourcing.org is pleased to present our November 2011 “Crowdsourcing Industry Landscape” infographic, which reflects our revised industry taxonomy and is aligned with Crowdsourcing.org's category structure. The infographic is available below (an ultra high-resolution version will be available for download from the site after CrowdConf2011).

In addition to updated site listings, this new version contains a number of important changes that reflect the current views of our research and editorial teams and input from our viewers. The previous taxonomy identified seven applications of crowdsourcing as well as a ‘Tools’ category — eight in total. After a period of considerable review, we’ve settled on six main categories of crowdsourcing.

"The whole purpose of creating the much needed crowdsourcing taxonomy is to provide a framework for the industry and to structure the discussion going forward,” says Carl Esposti, founder of Crowdsourcing.org. “As with all taxonomies, it must evolve as it is reviewed and refined."

"Crowdsourcing isn’t a static phenomenon," Esposti continues. "This is the third generation of our taxonomy, which we first launched at CrowdConf2010."
