Abstract

Extract:
Wired magazine introduced crowdsourcing to our lexicon in "The Rise of Crowdsourcing" (June 14, 2006). Jeff Howe, the writer of the article, defined crowdsourcing in a separate 2006 blog as "the act of a company or institution taking a function once performed by employees and outsourcing it to an undefined (and generally large) network of people in the form of an open call" (Howe, 2006a, p. 5). The job to be performed is to to resolve, or take steps toward resolving, a problem of a technical, creative, economic, or informational nature.
