Adventures in Crowdsourcing: The Ch. 18 Project

I’m immensely proud of this one – since Thomas L. Friedman’s Hot, Flat, and Crowded is 17 chapters long, we crowd-sourced his readers for suggestions on how to expand the book for Chapter 18. Friedman gave suggestions on his site and on a featured section of LinkedIn, and we ended up with 1,600 ideas and 850pgs of content.  He’s working through the comments and expanding the book for the paperback edition this summer.
