Crowdsourced Storytelling For The Modern Children’s Stage
Jeff Howe Welcomes the Crowd
Distributed Knowledge

I coined the term crowdsourcing five years ago in a June 2006 article in Wired magazine. I started my blog the same day the article went live on Wired's site, and for the next three years I covered the rise of crowdsourcing in everything from radiology to journalism to bird watching. When I was writing my book, How the Power of the Crowd is Driving the Future of Business, I used the blog to collect edits and feedback from, well, the crowd.

After three years of ceaseless writing and researching on the subject it was time to move on--literally and figuratively. In late 2009 I became a Nieman Fellow at Harvard, and relocated my family to Cambridge. In the last two years I've studied subjects ranging from US intellectual history to transmedia storytelling to the connection between social capital and social networks. I started teaching--one course each at Harvard, Boston University, and Northeastern University--and teamed up with the Atlantic.com to create the largest book club in human history. And in September I'll begin a tenure-track position in the journalism department at Northeastern University.

And through all this crowdsourcing was never far from my mind. I've often said I could happily spend the next 30 years of my life studying the emergence of such new forms of economic production as crowdsourcing. What I learned in the last two years is that I might not have a choice: Everything I studied, everything I taught, and everything I read was filtered through the formative lens of that pervasive concept of online collaboration.

Siemens moves to crowdsourcing to discover how cities are changing for the better
Distributed Knowledge

After launching a new storytelling format “/answers” together with renowned documentary filmers and journalists, Siemens, a leader in electrical engineering, operating in the industry, energy and healthcare sectors, has decided to take a step forward and call filmmakers around world to tell histories of how technology is changing cities for the better.

To gather these stories, the German company is launching a video contest on Zooppa, the world’s leading source of user-generated advertising. Titled “Changing Your City for the Better,” the contest awards filmmakers who submit the most captivating short films that demonstrate how technological innovations improve urban life and create a better world.

“After launching our new storytelling format ‘/answers’ on siemens.com together with renowned documentary filmers and journalists in late February, crowdsourcing content for this magazine is the natural next step for us”, said Tobias Dennehy, Editor in Chief Corporate Communications at Siemens.
 
“After all: the web is no longer about broadcasting; it’s about listening and ‘joint-casting’. That’s exactly what we’re aiming for in our cooperation with zooppa: listen to the community, get new, surprising impulses for our digital corporate flagship magazine /answers around urban life in the 21st century,” he added.
