Linda's Blog


So instead of writing a stuffy paper for Jeff Howe’s  book Crowdsourcing my class decided to post a series of tweets about what we got out of it. Seems fitting for a book on the power of the crowd, huh? So we divided the work in between all of us so we each could focus on a specific topic. For my part I decided to locate and link specific reports cited in the book along with companies mentioned along with websites.

The class has posted our tweets to our individual twitter accounts, but they also can be found on the Uconntweetbeat twitter account. All of my specific posts are below, but they are also on my twitter ( The individuals in our class used the hashtag on twitter of UCCrowdsourcing_Ch1 or the respective chapter number.  The final project (the Uconntweetbeat twitter account) used the hashtag CrowdsourcingUC_Ch1 ,or again, the respective chapter number. Our class also has a blog on wordpress. This is where you can find any cool things that we have dug up about crowdsourcing. My twitter posts are re-posted below just for convenience.

Still interested in the book? Feel free to pick up your copy at any bookstore.
