I came across two conferences:
- CrowdConf 2011 (November 1-2, 2011; San Francisco)
- 1st International Conference on Crowdsourcing, Communities and Co-creation (August 29, 2011; São Paulo)
“Crowdsourcing” is a new term for me although it’s been defined in 2006 by Jeff Howe. However, is it something new? Is it different from open communities? With my little curious, I found: Jeff Howe’s presentation, What is Crowdsourcing video and Crowdscourcing 1-5 by microengagement.
The key ideas behind are:
- open call
- online communities
