Los Angeles, CA, United States, 2011/02/14 - Crowdsourcing has launched the first industry crowdsourcing platform as an industry resource offering the largest online repository of news, articles, videos and site information on the subject of crowdsourcing and crowdfunding business models.
As the “go-to” resource for “Everything and Anything Crowdsourcing”, Crowdsourcing.org’s credentialed editorial team of crowdsourcing business leaders and industry experts, supplemented by guest blog posts from leading crowdsourcing industry figures, drives a strong and original editorial agenda. In addition community generated content ensures up to the minute posts on what’s happening in the world of crowdsourcing and crowdfunding.
The crowdsourcing model began to form around 10 years ago as the Internet backbone provided faster connection speeds and supported more sophisticated web-based applications that began to drive greater levels of user interactivity. Crowdsourcing supports more open platforms for innovation, collaboration, engagement, production, the sharing of knowledge, the provision of labor-on-demand solutions, and platforms for problem solving. Crowdsourcing has also led to an explosion of crowdfunding platforms for non-profit and commercial initiatives and ventures.
As crowdsourcing continues to develop as an industry and as crowdsourcing business models evolve, interest is growing exponentially and individuals, groups and enterprises of all sizes are eager to learn more about the industry. Of greatest interest is information about the different crowdsourcing business models, gaining an understanding of which platforms and crowdsourcing websites are available and learning about which companies are adopting crowdsourcing.
Crowdsourcing.org will provide its community of readers and active members with the information and resources to not only earn about what’s happening in the world of crowdsourcing but to also share information on crowdsourcing websites, videos, blogs, news and articles and connect and network with the community and crowdsourcing industry experts.
Crowdsourcing.org’s member population has been doubling each month driven by rich platform functionality, frequently added original editorial and a consistent stream of broader content, uploaded by members daily, including breaking crowdsourcing news, articles, and videos.
“We wanted to develop the first platform about crowdsourcing that used crowdsourcing to generate strong editorial and user generated content for the site’s readership.” said Carl Esposti, Founder and CEO of Crowdsourcing Inc. “Central to our vision is the continued development of an authoritative platform and invaluable resource for experts, academics, business owners, and the crowd in general”.
Access to Crowdsourcing.org’s content is free but a host of additional features are available for registered membership.
