Crowdsourcing

 Using the power of many, the kindness of strangers to get things done.  Here the National Park Service is enlisting the help of visitors to Dyke Marsh to help document the day to day, week to week changes of the Marsh.  The power of masses of people working together to get things done.  


Have you participated in crowdsourcing?

  2. Not that I can remember. At times it makes me annoyed when people try to raise funds for those injured in car accidents, costs covered by compulsory insurance and for medical treatments that are already covered by our health system. I might make exceptions for funerals where there isn't anyone else who can pay. A government paid funeral is of course extremely basic.
