Tim O’Reilly is such a wonderful speaker. I met him once at Tools of Change, in New York City. The conversation was very brief but I quickly realized why people gravitate to the man.

During this TEDMED talk O’Reilly speaks about the power of communities. He continues to explain that it’s the community that brings people together to build something extraordinary — and not the application. I am constantly telling folks that crowdsourcing is about the work process. But in listening to Tim — crowdsourcing is so much more than that.

Crowdsourcing is about bringing the community together to find the expertise you need.

Well, enough of me rambling on about expertise, community and crowdsourcing – let’s listen to Tim tell a much better story.
