More About The Concept of Crowdsourcing

Crowdsourcing and its growing impact on a number of areas reveals just a small part of its overall potential. Very often I get requests for more information on this, so I thought I'd pull out some useful articles to get you started:

  • Lakhani -- Harvard Business Review - Draws on open source and lessons from Innocentive
  • Rise of Crowdsourcing - Wired -- 2006 piece on the emergence of these new models
  • HBR Blog - Business Ideas from the cloud - Discusses how to create a vibrant community and highlights Netflix and GE
  • HPN Healthcare competition - O'Reilly Radar - How crowdsourcing is being applied to one of the biggest social issues of our time
Could list hundreds of others, here is one of my favorite stories is from one of my favorite sites. Crowdsourcing.org tells the story of how Goldcorp used crowdsourcing to increase their market cap from 100M to 9B !
