"Outsourcing to the Crowd" Crowdsourcing is most literally, outsourcing tasks to the public that you would normally handle yourself or outsource to an external company. It's a combination of classical social collaborations with modern technological means. The best known example of crowdsourcing is of course Wikipedia, but what are the latest developments in culture, arts and heritage? And how can you move the crowd to benefit your own organization?

KJO9 offers presentations from (inter)national speakers on striking crowdsourcing projects, the do's and dont's, tips on how to mobilize the crowd an lot's of inspiration on alternative ways to collect tools and knowledge. Scroll down for a full overview of the programme.
