Crowdsourcing calls on an entire community to participate, whether by tweeting photos of a protest or by contributing knowledge to a collaboration as large as Wikipedia. The practice, when used effectively, allows researchers to mine the collective potential of individuals around the globe and opens up new possibilities for fields like journalism, social justice and disaster relief. We look at the different ways innovators use crowdsourcing today while asking what obstacles still could be limiting its potential.
