  1. Great post! Not sure if it belongs to your list, but one of the earliest applications of crowdsourcing is that of software development. Linux is one of the most prominent examples of free and open source software collaboration. It might not actually consist of the average ‘lay-crowd’ we know today. However, the Internet crowd in its earlier days probably consisted of a significant number of developer-types.

    1. Yep Linux is definitely crowd sourced. I commented on it in this week’s class discussion board. This blog post aims to highlight ways people could get involved online.
