Okay, I am going to share information that I am finding as I try to understand the concept called “Crowd sourcing”. Here is what I found as a base definition on WikiPedia:
Crowdsourcing is a neologism for the act of taking a task traditionally performed by an employee or contractor, and outsourcing it to an undefined, generally large group of people or community in the form of an open call.
So from a basic perspective utilizing many resources to do a task. It’s a very interesting concept and I am wondering how it can be best utilized.
I will keep you up-to-date as I try to figure out how to best utilize it…
Please feel free to help me understand and post a comment! Have you crowd sourced something? Have you provided crowd sourcing services?
