Ericsson Recruits a Crowdsourced Army of Programmers
Open Innovation

Using a crowdsourced army of programmers instead of a traditional employed workforce, Ericsson’s Innovation Center in Brazil broke away from the traditions of the office environment and managed to reduce its cost of software production by 30%.

Clearly, this formula yielded positive results — Ericsson’s headquarters in Sweden is planning to implement this solution in other its research centers across the globe. Ericsson expanded the Center this year to meet all demands for customization and development of Latin America and the Caribbean, a sign that the company plans to pursue a similar strategy worldwide.

Microsoft invite the crowd to build Windows 8 together
Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

With a sympathetic "Welcome to Windows 8", Steven Sinofsky, President of the Windows Division at Microsoft, launched the first post on the “Building Windows 8” blog inviting programmers around the world to crowsdsource the development of the new version of the world dominant operating system. Notifications of posts to the blog will be announced on Twitter stream @BuildWindows8.

“We've been hard at work designing and building Windows 8, and today we want to begin an open dialog with those of you who will be trying out the pre-release version over the coming months”, wrote Mr. Sinofsky, who has been the President of the Windows Division at Microsoft since September 2008, responsible for the development and marketing of Windows, Windows Live, and Internet Explorer.

According to Mr. Sinofsky, Windows 8 reimagines Windows for a new generation of computing devices, and will be the very best operating system for hundreds of millions of PCs, new and old, used by well over a billion people globally. “Building the next release of Microsoft Windows is an industry-wide effort that Microsoft approaches with a strong sense of responsibility and humility”, he wrote.

UN-SPIDER: Space-based information for Crowdsource Mapping
Distributed Knowledge

A UN initiative to boost emergency response by crowdsourced mapping and space technology

How to ensure that space-based information for crowdsource mapping benefits the emergency response community and disaster risk reduction?

This is the key question that specialists around the world will attempt to answer during the Expert Meeting being held in Geneva, this November, which is being held to coincide with the International Conference on Crisis Mapping.

The Expert Meeting is a fundamental part of the programme that is being organized by the United Nations Platform for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response (SPÍDER). The SPIDER program was established by the United Nations General Assembly with the mandate of ensuring that all countries, international and regional organizations, have access to space-based information, and to ensure they develop the capacity to use all types of space-based information to support the full, disaster management cycle. This includes the need to ensure that space-based information supports the crowdsource mapping efforts for the benefit of the disaster community.

The meeting will focus on exploring the different ways that the space technology community can collect, organize and provide greater access to its information and how it can better coordinate the communities through which it crowdsources information.

Crowd Creativity

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.
