Crowdsourcing

Hi fellow CCers,

I have just been reading the latest issue of the wired magazine and they introduced something called <a href="http://www.wired.com/wired/issue/geekipedia">Geekipedia</a>.

One entry in that Geekipedia (interestingly it's missinga definition of 'Geek') is for <a href="http://www.wired.com/culture/geekipedia/magazine/geekipedia/crowdsourcing">Crowdsourcing</a> , the idea to provide an infrastructure where projects of different nature are offered to a global market of fulfillers.

Now there is of course already a number of platforms providing such a service, mainly in the webdevelopment area, e.g.

<a href="http://www.freelance.de/de/index.php">freelance.de</a>

<a href="http://www.scriptlance.com/">scriptlance.com</a>

With a focused group of nearly a million professionals in the SAP ecosystem, wouldn't it be nice for the SCN to introduce such a crowdsourcing sub-space?

At least it could help to refinance the cost of setting up an environment under the subscription program introduced recently

I think such a crowdspace could support a number of business models both for the SCN operators as well as the SCN members. With an eye on social responsibility the crowdspace could also promote and support non-profit project fulfilment right besides for-profit projects.

what do you think about it?
