Crowdsourcing Is the New Source for Jobs -- and Creative Self-employment

Crowdsourcing is the New Crowdsourcing Is the New Source for Jobs -- and Creative Self-employment

Find green business solutions
I received a "job offer" by email today. I wasn't looking for a job, but "they" are looking for creative talent -- and it is an enlightening insight into the new world of work. With decades of creative management under my belt, I find this new marketplace both daunting and invigorating. There are new job skills required for the creative worker who is going to swim in this ocean. Ponds are no longer viable in most careers!

Microengagement, crowdsourcing, open source, dtp... the creative world has shifted on its axis! Wonder where the jobs are? They are in the "$1 a throw, 5 million users" market!


We're familiar with social media, and Wikipedia, and Google search ... but are you aware that these Internet worlds are all based on crowdsourcing? Crowdsourcing is a new form of productivity that has blossomed because business pollen (creative production) can now float on the wind (Internet) to reach receptive blossoms far, far away (global marketplace).

Music Crowdsourcing

Music rights have hamstrung amateur and individual artist creativity in the indie film arena for decades. There is no stronger union clutch than the music industry -- but that has changed with digital creation, distribution (Apple store) and crowdsourcing sites. Music can now be made by prosumers, distributed, and made affordable for related creative production teams.

The Timeline of Crowdsourcing

Technology has to catch up with cultural demand for disrupting change and innovation to happen -- and catch on. That's been the case in the digital world. From open source, to ubiquitious Internet access, software studios... this is the timeline of our generation's industrial revolution!

Virtual Studios for Shared Creation

Digital editing of video -- live action or animation -- is just made for collaboration. You have these tools. I have those tools. We have a loose script...and we each create characters or scenes that can be cut together. Fascinating possibilities for crowdsourcing of digital video content.
