Crowdsourcing community projects like Tom Sawyer
Dave Olson, vice president of community at HootSuite, will share tips on how to tap into the audience for help with stories. He’ll talk about the importance of setting boundaries; understanding types of contributors and what makes them want to contribute; thwarting confusion and conflicts; and avoiding “cat herding.” He’ll also offer crowdsourcing examples that involve helping victims in disaster zones and organizing citizen reporting at the Olympic Games. || Related reading: 5 ways to get people to contribute good content for your site
Shortly after my “Crowd Sourcing Community Projects Like Tom Sawyer” spiel at SXSW 2012, i sat for a quick interview with Brown Paper Tickets who are providing a remarkable service for bands and fans. I talk about building community with events online and through social media.
