Matt is a young film director who has successfully funded his amazing documentary Below New York on Kickstarter last summer. As Matt himself calls it, Below New York is a “love letter, a personal essay” to New York and its great subway artists.  Matt requested for $3000 to finish the shooting and the production of the documentary and within a little over a month the amount was gathered.

Crowdsourcing Tweet Gems from the Tweet Book
Distributed Knowledge

I was recently asked to give my assessment of the newly-released “#CROWDSOURCING Tweet”. The project is a clever collection of the best tweets about crowdsourcing. Everything from highly-academic observations to harsh scrutiny about the practice to historical citations of crowdsourcing’s beginnings. Written by two serial book authors who have utilized crowdsourcing before in their many endeavors, Kiruba Shankar and Mitchell Levy are the perfect pair to curate this discussion. Since my response to their request quickly turned into a rave review, I wanted to share some of the best bits I read with you all.

Arcbazar: Architecture for the Crowd, by the Crowd
Crowd Creativity

Most people who want to remodel their home come to realize that the rates of professional architectural design services can quickly spiral out of control; depending on the job, professional designers may charge thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars per project — and that’s before the actual construction costs. Enter the crowd. Arcbazar.com — ‘arc’ for architecture and ‘bazar’ for bazaar — attempts to “make architectural design accessible to everyone who is looking for it.” Crowdsourcing.org spoke with Dr. Imdat As, founder of Arcbazar, to learn more — and to ask for kitchen remodeling ideas (…ok, maybe not).
