Stephanie Rothenberg & Jeff Crouse - Invisible Threads
Upgrade! NY continues its series on open source as it relates to activism and creative practice.
Within activist and creative practice there is a range of models for mobilizing the labor and creativity of the crowd (aka “crowdsourcing”). Both practices experiment with a spectrum of autonomy and control within those models. From distributed design to distributed fundraising, MoveOn to Mechanical Turk, a crowdsourcer issues a call and creates structure for participation.
