Wikipedia Data, Visualized
Distributed Knowledge

Wikipedia is a fascinating resource and the most famous example of crowdsourcing. Kalev Leetaru of the Unidersity of Illinois and the folks at SGI decided to take a novel approach to mining this data. Leetaru loaded all four million English-language pages into the SGI UV 2000. Analyzing the data in near-real time, he created algorithms that were able to visualize not only how the locations connected to each other through time, but also the “tone” of the articles.

Crowdsourcing Humanitarian Convoys in Libya
Distributed Knowledge

Many activists in Egypt donated food and medical supplies to support the Libyan revolution in early 2011. As a result, volunteers set up and coordinated humanitarian convoys from major Egyptian cities to Tripoli. But these convoys faced two major problems. First, volunteers needed to know where the convoys were in order to communicate this to Libyan revolutionists so they could wait for the fleet at the border and escort them to Tripoli. Second, because these volunteers were headed into a war zone, their friends and family wanted to keep track of them to make sure they were safe. The solution? IntaFeen.com.

Crowdsourcing meets Coworking - Working Models of the Future
Cloud Labor, Crowd Creativity, Distributed Knowledge

The crowdsourcing platform is a virtual marketplace for freelancers and companies - this is where all projects are implemented online. Here the power lies in numbers. It's all about people coming together to work to achieve goals and solve problems. And to a large extent they are driven by their own motivation - not because a company has committed them to it. Both crowdsourcing and coworking are based on the fact that people who work in virtual and physical networks can in this way create a higher value collectively than if they acted independently. This is also true for problem-solving, innovation and creative output.
