    3. 3. CROWDSOURCING “Hobbyists, part-timers, and dabblers suddenly have a market for their efforts, as smart companies in industries as disparate as pharmaceuticals and television discover ways to tap the latent talent of the crowd. The labor isn’t always free, but it costs a lot less than paying traditional employees. It’s not outsourcing; it’s crowdsourcing.” -- Jeff Howe, “The Rise of Crowdsourcing,” Wired 14:06 (June 2006). http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/14.06/crowds.html
