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.
