If Crowdsourcing is the Problem then Crowdfunding Maybe the Answer: Seeing the World Through a Photo Journalist Lens
Crowd Creativity

 

Internet spawned ventures like Flickr and iStockphoto providing stock photography at a fraction of the price of professional stock photography changed the paradigm as photo stock became available and affordable to the masses. So fundamental was the change that rather than be cannibalized, Getty Images, “the world’s leading creator and distributor of visual content”, cannibalized the cannibal, acquiring iStockphoto in February 2006.

The Myth of Amateur Crowds
Distributed Knowledge

In input-gathering public relations campaigns, amateurs truly are engaging the product in a small way, casting thousands or millions of votes to determine the product they will have an opportunity to purchase next. But this “engagement of the masses” in product development does not translate to real crowdsourcing activities.

These are not everyday people who pick up a video camera and try to produce a commercial.

Inside Threadless.com

In 2000, a college student named Jake Nickell entered a t-shirt design contest hosted by Dreamless.org, a (now defunct) online forum for web programmers and graphic designers. The winning design would become the official t-shirt of a Dreamless event in London. Out of about 100 entries, Nickell’s design won the contest.

Jacob DeHart, another college student with a passion for design, also entered the competition. Though his design didn’t win, he and Nickell (who had met through the forum) began to talk about how much fun it was to participate in the contest. “Dreamless was all about art and design and a lot of artists on there had 'battles' and shared/critiqued their work with each other,” wrote Nickell in a blog post entitled ‘
Threadless.com: The History’. “It was all around a very creative environment for hobbyists and professionals alike to unleash some creativity in their free time.” That got the two thinking: what if they held an ongoing design contest where the winning t-shirts would go on sale? Soon, Threadless was born.
