Crowd Sourcing Innovative Social Change on Vimeo

http://www.isria.com/pages/17_April_2011_97.php
Absolutely fantastic panel from South by Southwest 2010. All about how crowd-sourcing through the internet is bringing about real social change.

(Sorry about the shakiness! Raw audio is available at socializeyourcause.org)

CrowdSourcing is: Getting ideas, content, volunteer tasks, money, or other things from a wide swath of people. And that’s good thing for solving complex social problems with innovative ideas. During the session, it was pointed out that crowd sourcing is a way to people, organizations, and communities work together for mutual good, and without competing.

Panelists were Holly Ross, Beth Kanter, Amy Sample Ward, David Neff, and Kari Dunn Saratovsky.

This panel is all about how to crowdsource ideas and actions from your supporters! Crowdsourcing is defined as getting ideas, content or other things from a wide swath of people. It can be extremely powerful for NPOs, especially those who are strapped for cash and/or man power. Asking your community for their feedback and ideas can go a long way.

P.S. The presentation itself was crowdsourced!

Panelists are:

Beth Kanter – CEO Zoetica. See Beth’s post about crowdx
Holly Ross – NTEN
Amy Sample Ward – NetSquared Amy’s roundup of the panel
Kari Dunn Saratovsky – Case Foundation
David Neff – Lights, Camera, Help
The camera is a little shaky, so if you would prefer the audio to the panel you can listen to it here:
