Beth Simone Noveck writes in The Guardian about the need for more and better crowdsourcing. Her recommendations include focusing on the knowledge building aspects of crowdsourcing – not just using crowdsourcing as a communications tool, developing a range of crowdsourcing practices that speak to people’s particular knowledge, and ensuring that crowdsourcing is open to all. Read the whole article Could crowdsourcing expertise be the future of government? Noveck directs the Governance Lab (GovLab) at New York University, a great source of information on crowdsourcing and public participation.
