Today, there is only one podcast deep-diving into 3 of the tech world’s hottest topics: crowdsourcing, open innovation, and co-creation. “Loud About Crowdsourcing” was born right here at Topcoder — with the help of our in-house crowdsourcing experts, industry friends, and leaders in the crowdsourcing space. Let’s go over what we’ve covered so far…
Episode #1: What is Crowdsourcing?
In the first episode, three of our Topcoder experts and crowdsourcing evangelists — Clinton, Will, and Nick — discuss their own crowdsourcing tales: why they’re passionate about it, the surprising origin story of crowdsourcing, and its long history.
Spoiler: “Crowdsourcing” itself isn’t new; it’s just a newer term for a proven method.
Episode #2: John Winsor + Domino’s
Join John Winsor, best-selling author and leading entrepreneur — as well as the founder of Victors & Spoils — and the Topcoder crew for the second episode. Learn about John’s influence on Domino’s… and how it led to their successful radical transparency campaign in 2010.
Episode #3: Lee Odess + space poop
In the third episode of our podcast, Lee Odess, the Vice President of UniKey Technologies, joins the conversation. At UniKey, Lee works on frictionless technology — secure mobile technologies that optimize manual experiences like waiting in line. Imagine you enter the food court of a sports stadium and they know what you want to eat because you’ve ordered it before; thanks to mobile technology, that data about your habits is readily available, making for a simpler and more enjoyable experience. Lee formerly ran projects at Brivo Labs, where they used crowdsourcing to accelerate IoT application development.
