"Kiruba Shankar" and "Mitchell Levy" are both firm believers in the concept of collaborative wisdom. In their very diverse and singularly successful careers, crowdsourcing has helped them accomplish many tasks successfully while having fun along the way. Now they bring you "#CROWDSOURCING tweet Book01," in which they share with you smart ideas (crowdsourced, of course!) that teach you to tap into the wisdom of the crowd.
Kiruba and Mitchell can convince the most vociferous skeptic. Here's a sample: "Doubt the value of crowdsourcing? Encyclopedia Britannica took 200 years to write 80,000 articles. Wikipedia: 9 years, 10 million+ articles." Through the book, their personal experiences and their ability to tap into the experiences of others comes clearly through. For example: "I crowdsourced the creation of my logo and got 95 logo concepts for $300. My graphics agency just lost a customer to crowdsourcing." And lest you start thinking of crowdsourcing as a silver bullet, here's a reality check: "Crowdsourcing is a democratic process. However, just like in any democracy, it needs leaders to hold the flag and lead."
"#CROWDSOURCING tweet Book01" is "the" book on leveraging the experience of the crowd, brought to you by two experienced authors who are comfortable with walking their talk. Replete with bite-sized wisdom from start to finish, you will surely find yourself flipping through its pages time and again as you tap into the collective wisdom of your crowd.
"#CROWDSOURCING tweet Book01" is part of the THiNKaha series whose 112-page books contain 140 well-thought-out quotes (tweets/ahas).
The War of Art identifies the enemy that every one of us must face,
outlines a battle plan to conquer this internal foe, then pinpoints just
how to achieve the greatest success.
The War of Art emphasizes the resolve needed to recognize and
overcome the obstacles of ambition and then effectively shows how to
reach the highest level of creative discipline.
Think of it as tough love . . . for yourself.
