Colleen Flanigan, the coral reef sculptor and TED Senior Fellow, didn’t have time to get a haircut before TEDGlobal back in June. So in the spirit of the conference, themed ‘Radical Openness,’ she crowdsourced one instead, letting dozens of conference-goers each take one snip of her hair.
“I feel that I am in a new phase of my life and very excited to see where all these new international, interdisciplinary relationships and connections I’ve been so happy and fortunate to make will lead over the years.
Collaborations are happening everywhere I go. The webs and threads of intersecting thought and people are multiplying as a result of my immersion with TED attendees and Fellows over the past four years.
Crowdsourcing has grown in so many ways in the last few years with interesting projects all across the world. Governments, non-profits, Fortune 500 companies and ordinary citizens have used open innovation and crowd help to achieve a variety of goals.
But would you get a crowdsourced haircut?
