Video Details

Jeff Howe wrote the book on crowdsourcing. We ask him the tough questions about how user-generated content will affect the media, and how journalists can prepare for the future. Jeff is a contributing editor at Wired magazine, where he covers the entertainment industry, among other subjects. In a June 2006 article for Wired, Jeff coined the term "crowdsourcing" to describe mass collaboration used to accomplish tasks formerly performed by employees. His book Crowdsourcing: Why the Power of the Crowd Is Driving the Future of Business was released by Crown Business in August 2008.
