Interesting article in the airplane magazine, deltaskymag.com, author Mya Frazier, February 2010 on Crowd Sourcing. According to article it is a way to “harness [sic] ideas and opinions of the masses.” The various web sites that were explored included threadless.com (submit t-shirt ideas and designs for cash and credit), crowdspring.com, (readers contribute ideas on creative projects) innocentive.com (connects “seekers” of solutions with “solvers) quirky.com (for $99 one can get feedback from others on ideas and/or products you thought up). It was a good read and gave me a break from all those books on my iTouch. Also, now I know where to go with that idea that comes to me in the middle of the night.
