Crowdsourcing Game Development: Driving a NextGen Revolution
Crowd Creativity, Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

Ardent fans and many industry veterans of the computer game industry advocate that the general lack of creativity in game development has caused a rippling effect that leaves leading and blooming game developers clinging to the hope of making the next “big come back” to wow gamers. Sadly, this has been far from reality for some; and in a world where only the best game developer gets to take home the bigger sales check, many have decided to blow open the doors of their own restricted environment to welcome a more democratic approach in game design.

Seven Great Citizen Science Projects
Distributed Knowledge

Many scientific advancements in prior centuries can be attributed to a single individual or, at most, two to three people that have either independently or jointly innovated. However, advances in technology, global communications and social interactions have meant that the 21st century will be recognized as the century where mass collaboration changes the paradigm.

We shouldn't get so caught up in the buzz around crowdsourcing that we overlook how to talk about it as a process that needs refining. So how do we go about making crowdsourcing more efficient, more productive or just plain better?
