Overview: CrowdSourcing Skills

Over the last few years, the number of companies turning to the “crowd” for content and ideas has increased tenfold. These aren’t just shoestring-budget tiny businesses or tech companies. Huge names like Apple, Amazon, and Netflix have all used the power of the crowd to generate ideas.

The term “crowdsourcing” was first coined by Jeff Howe in Wired Magazine in 2006. By June 2013, it had been added to the Oxford Dictionary. Crowdsourcing is a method of getting ideas, content, solutions, or support from a group of people or community, rather than from employees or suppliers in-house.

Crowdsourcing isn’t actually a new concept at all. People have been doing it for centuries. One of the first examples of crowdsourcing happened in 1714 when the British government put out a call to the public for help solving the “Longitude Problem” that killed hundreds of sailors each year. The problem was solved by the invention of the chronometer, a kind of clock in a sealed box that helped ships determine longitude accurately no matter what weather conditions exist.

Other examples of early crowdsourcing include the creation of the first Oxford Dictionary by hundreds of volunteers, the design competition that created the Sydney Opera House, the content on Wikipedia, reality TV shows like “American Idol,” and Marillion, a British progressive rock band in the 90s that asked its fans to finance its tour.

In fact, there have been countless instances of crowdsourcing throughout history. It’s not just a buzzword but a simple truth that creativity and innovation can come from anywhere. The great idea you’re looking for could very well come from some random stranger with a new way of seeing the problem.
