A message from Crowdsourcing Week's CEO

A few times each year I like to keep in touch with people I’ve met. There are no secrets in what I send out so I thought I’d share the content of my latest personal e-mail with a wider audience.

Still ringing in my ears are the words of my good friend, Joe Schmidt from Freedom United at our CSW Summit in D.C. back in June.

“The Crowd Is The World’s Newest Super Power!”

The second wave of the crowd economy is here and I’ve picked four ways in which crowdsourcing going mainstream this year can stimulate innovation, accelerate the research on healthcare, and help with a multitude of challenges we face today.
