Crowd-sourcing Projects Like Tom Sawyer SXSWi, 2012 (brief round-up)

More artifacts and coverage at: Crowd Sourcing like Tom Sawyer – Artifacts from my (Daveo) core conversation at SXSW 2012

In this talk, Dave Olson shared how companies can use their community to crowd source projects, by inspiring passionate users to participate in mutually beneficial projects.

In this storytelling-style talk, challenges, strategies, and successful examples were shared by Dave Olson at  SXSW, March 10th 2012.

Remarks

From Technical Bent: SXSW Quick Hits: Day 1 and 2

My favorite panel of the fest thus far…It was the presentation style that was brilliant. Dressed in character. Tying every aspect back to that Mark Twain reference. Great physical visuals that you could pass around. It was a showcase example of a solo talk.

From Darrell Jursa: Thoughts from SXSW: Crowdsourcing Lessons from Tom Sawyer

In Dave’s trademark fashion, he walked us through each story, using audience motivation and end benefit as pillars to ground us in the “why” audiences participated, and continue to participate in these efforts. He was able to talk about what we usually call “process” as a storyteller, imparting wisdom based on actual experience.

From Adam Leiter: Tom Sawyer Goes Social – HootSuite’s Crowdsourcing Insights

I keep coming back to the talk that Dave Olson from Hootsuite gave…we’ve followed a number of the rules that Dave Olson touted in his session: Thank people, make it fun for them, give them an incentive (not monetary), make it easy for them to participate.
