    By , our

    I love the internet.  There are many things I loathe about it, like the way people can sign up to be notified which B-list celebrities share their birthdays and other meaningless timewasters like that, but on the whole I just love the fact that the whole of human experience and knowledge (except the bits about celebrity birthdays) is there right for the taking.  Even more importantly, it’s right there for the giving – more and… Read more

    Crowdsourcing has been around for a few years now; the idea is you put what you want done out into the big wide world and people from around the planet put in bids to do it for you.  Think www.freelancer.com, or www.designcrowd.com and so on.
