It is amazing to me how many people are willing through crowdsourcing to use their talents and time for free; especially if the work is fun. 

One company has made this their speciality While not entirely free. Microtask, a Finnish crowdsourcing startup  has crowdsourced more than 2 million individual tasks, or the equivalent of 1,700 hours of work, in one month.   "According to its official website, Microtask's first application areas are document processing and data entry, which typically require large amounts of menial and repetitive work such as typing in forms, fixing scanning results and verifying data." "http://www.trivantis.com/social-learning-news/you-too-can-crowdsource-free-labor-73789

John,  thanks for the article.  I have heard the term "Mashups" but never really knew what it was all about, and while I honestly still struggle with the concept from a technical standpoint, your video helps alot to understand the concept.

 

Plus I like the songs involved too ! I am going to  check out more.

John, a great article and it gave me some laughs. I want to add this link to your collection: Watch here, please.

Humans mash up, why not technology, too.

Many companies talk about embracing social business standards, but keep their APIs private. That's something like toasting abstinence with a good stiff drink.
