Following my post earlier this January trying to further outline the relationship between crowdsourcing and public participation, Daren C. Brabham left a comment pointing me to some of the research he had done in this area. Last week, I had a chance to hear him present at the 2010 Stakeholder Engagement Online Conference. I really enjoyed his talk and thought this would be a good time to ask him on the show.
In this session, we talk about the concept of crowdsourcing as an engagement process in urban planning. Rather than get stuck too much on the challenges or shortcomings, though, I wanted to focus on what works. Hopefully, we’ll encourage people to start their own experiments with this approach. Enjoy!
