Perception Is Reality

Crowdsourcing

Posted on: September 9, 2008

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve made a post. But this one marks significant importance in I believe both the developed and developing worlds. Jeff Howe, the author of the book on Crowdsourcing has recently released a video about the topic. This gives great insights into his book, into how our societies are now functioning and possibly, how they will steer both economies and creativity. It reminds me of the story of how Prometheus stole fire from the Greek Gods and gave it to the humans. A product or service no longer runs in a trickle down hierarchy. It has rather become a democratic process, reminiscent of ideas of cyberlibertarianism by professor Langdon Winner.

I had a little conversation (if you would like to call it that) with Howe about critiquing crowdsourcing and it became an entire thread on his blog which made me feel like a million bucks all over the world.

Without further wait, I present to you, Jeff Howe.
