Von der Masse geküsst: Ideen per Crowdsourcing

Crowdsourcing ist hip. Zuerst mal weil’s geht. Ohne Web 2.0 bräuchte man über die smoothe Verteilung von Miniaufträgen in die Wolke der Bereitstehenden gar nicht zu reden.

We’re sorry, but until now, Domino’s really didn’t care, er… know.” (Actual Employee) If this kind of statement makes you pick up the phone and ask for instant delivery of the “new recipe” pizza, then you might be exactly the person that Crispin, Porter + Bogusky had in mind... Read More

Die 10 viralsten Videos von 2009

Eigentlich darf man Viralvideo ja gar nicht mehr sagen. Weil ja alles inzwischen so viral ist, wie Zucker süß oder ZDF langweilig. Aber wenn die neue Medienwelt schon wieder mit Regeln anfängt, dann darf man sie natürlich auch brechen.
