Video: Speaking with USAID’s Stephanie Grosser About Crowdsourcing

Written by Ramon Nuez

Aug 9, 2012

Yesterday we spoke with Stephanie Grosser — Communications Specialist — for USAID. We spent the large part of our conversation discussing crowdsourcing. This was an interesting conversation. USAID used the crowd to locate USAID Development Credit Authority (DCA) loan data and make the dataset publicly available.

One of the largest hurdles for USAID was over-coming legal challenges. Many of which are unique to government agencies.

Do you think that government should use crowdsourcing? Let us know after you watch the video.
