What a difference 5 years make. When Jeff Howe coined the term “crowdsouring” in 2006, there were but a handful of vendors, websites and technologies breaking ground in this category. On the backs of the early settlers, an explosion of categories have developed. And with them, companies to cover their progress and the what’s next of the industry.
One of those companies is Crowdsourcing.org. They’re doing a good job of serving as the “authoritative portal for the crowdsourcing and crowdfunding industry”. Now, Jeff Howe is jumping in to help make this very true. That’s good news. Anything that furthers these concepts and the companies that power them into the mainstream is a good thing.
I particularly like the directory they are building to help keep order to the expanding crowdsourcing universe. Keep it up guys.
