Privacy Icons Legal Hackathon

Privacy Icons Legal Hackathon | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

I love this idea of Stanford to help solidify the open internet. They want to crowdsource common privacy policies and connect them to new icons that will be well-known. Then we all know what we are signing up for based on shared ideas of what is cool and what is not cool for being regulated.

The Washington Post Launches Platform for Crowdsourcing

The Washington Post Launches Platform for Crowdsourcing | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

I worked for The Washington Post Company's CableOne Advertising, and I went to the same university where Rob Curley graduated.  Curley started pushing the Post in this direction a few years back, before he left the post.  He had some great ideas, but lacked resources and interns to make them happen. I appreciated his passion for local news and global news.

Original post from Howard Rheingold:

If it is done right, this could be a collective intelligence platform as well as a crowdsourcing tool for journalists and an experiment in the public sphere. -- Howard

 

"The Washington Post today announced it has launched a new platform for crowdsourcing. “Crowd Sourced” is The Post’s special feature that allows Post journalists to ask questions about today’s concerns and begin a conversation about these issues. Users will be able to answer those questions and vote for the ideas they value most, so the most popular responses are surfaced on the page."

Opinion Space | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Here is a high-tech effort of the US Government to attempt to harness the wisdom of crowds and individuals to suggest solutions to current problems.

There is a small audience at this point, so it is a great opportunity to join a small community that will hopefully grow in the future.

Create simplified charts.  The value is that you can use crowdsourced data pools.  I am hoping the IBM puts more resources behind this interesting technology.
