Creative Crowdsourcing meets Crowdfunding: How The Web Changes Art
Crowd Creativity, Crowdfunding

Social Media Week in Berlin (19-23 September 2011) will bring together jovoto, a creative crowdsourcing platform for collaborative idea generation together with Start Next, a crowdfunding platform for artists, designers and inventors to undertake a unique experiment to merge the power of creative crowdsourcing with the power of crowdfunding. Together jovoto and Start Next  will kick-off a cross-platform initiative to crowdfund and then produce, works of art. The concept is; three weeks of proposals to identify artists, four weeks funding followed by two weeks of art.

They believe that everyone is an artist and that everyone has the ability to create art. jovoto and Start Next will help fund artists and then enable the distribution their work over the Internet so that they can reach the broadest possible audience. The development and implementation of creative ideas through the Internet is increasingly becoming a collaborative act. Creative crowdsourcing can involve the broadcast of a creative endeavor inviting creatives to provide individual works. Alternatively, art can be formed as a result of the collective participation of many artists. Artists like Aaron Koblin have demonstrated how it’s possible to create unique work by tapping into large communities of artists, often involving thousands of individuals. Crowdsourcing both provides the opportunity for new talent to be found and new forms of art to be created.

Crowdsourcing Open Science

High speed science - will it save lives?

Amid concern that the Peer Review process may hold back speedy solutions, and with little financial incentive to improve drugs to make them more effective, Open Science projects are springing up all over the web.  Here’s the lowdown on some of the problems and solutions facing experimental lab research and some of the innovative projects that are emerging as a result.

Matthew Todd, an organic chemist from the University of Sydney’s School of Chemistry used a Google Tech Talk as a platform to preach the spirit of openness that is part of the Google ethos in the hope that this openness can be widely adopted by the scientific community.

Crowdfunding app rewards donors with space on a digital wall

Back in 2006 UK university student Alex Tew raised more than USD 1 million by selling 100-pixel blocks of space on the Million Dollar Homepage. Inspired to bring such capabilities to everyone, Supporter Wall is a site that lets anyone put a like-minded app on their own web page to raise funds for a specific project or accept ongoing donations.


Now in alpha, New York-based Supporter Wall is an interactive grid that can be customized and installed on any website, allowing visitors to donate small amounts of money in exchange for their own spot on the wall. Each time they do, the square they purchase displays the photo and link of their choice; the funds they pay, meanwhile, go to the wall owner's PayPal account.

Google vs. the Human Search Engine – Crowdsourcing Q&A
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

Q&A is massive, far bigger than many realize!  Four of the top Q&A sites are in comScore’s Top 100 web properties, generating a staggering 15 billion page views between them. I wanted to know what the future had in store for Q&A, and why predictions were being made that the emerging winners from this space will soon rival Google for next generation search. Indeed, with Google’s February 2010 acquisition of the social-networking start-up Aardvark, which allows users to “tap the knowledge of people in your network” along with Facebook’s launching of its Question functionality, it’s clear that this is seen as big game. I recently interviewed Shawn Schwegman, Chief Marketing Officer of ChaCha to find out why Q&A is so big, and to learn where it is headed.

MyHeartMap Challenge: Using a crowdsourced app to help saving lives

A group of Penn Medicine researchers Led by Dr. Raina Merchant, an emergency physician and resuscitation expert, is launching a crowdsourcing contest this Fall that will use a smartphone app to plot the locations of Philadelphia's public automated external defibrillators (AED) which are used to restore cardiac arrest victims' hearts to their normal rhythm.

The MyHeartMap Challenge a great idea among a growing trend toward using crowdsourcing to find solutions to troubling problems in health care, are inviting people to use app to tag the photos with location information and details about the device like its color and manufacturer.

The Penn contest aims to catalog those devices and build an app using the database of AED locations which will link to a person's GPS coordinates and help them locate the nearest AED during an emergency. There's an estimated one million AEDs across the nation, hung clearly on the walls in airports and casinos, but also tucked away in restaurant closets and under the cash register in coffee shop.

A Huge Leap Forward for Open Science
Distributed Knowledge

This week’s news that researchers at Cern (European Organization for Nuclear Research) in Switzerland are publishing their results “so other scientists can determine if the approach contains any mistakes” represents a huge leap forward for Open Science.

The science community is traditionally a “closed” community, probably at the insistence of the large pharmaceutical organizations who insist on this as a method of protecting the intellectual property rights on any research they fund.  While there have been moves within the science community to share research online as a means of “crowdsourcing” the work and speeding up discovery, science seems to be way behind other disciplines in actually getting the information out there.

While it makes perfect sense to many researchers to open up research projects for collaboration, the companies that sponsor and fund research laboratories worldwide are keen to keep the lid on research results and new developments due to the immense amounts of money to be made from new drugs, medical procedures and technological/industrial applications.
