That's a great glossary and I can imagine it being really useful. Well done!

Thanks for this work, David. I've previously thought about non-techie visitors to my website, and how I might help them better. This glossary is definitely a step in the right direction, and I'm considering adding it as a glossary link across my site. Well done. And thanks for sharing it with the world via Creative Commons!

Greaty reference for anybody David!

Under crowdsourcing you have defined the crowdsourcer’s as volunteers! I wonder if that is really the case or the truest definition. What would be the difference if payment was part of the relationship? Isn’t the emphasis on the peripheral (crowd,) large number, and as you stated, external to the organization? How could CS be better defined? Alan.


just a note of appreciation for pulling all this together. I can see this being a definitive reference source. On a related point, we were mulling over the possibility of doing a glossary of local government terms in my previous role at the IDeA (Head of Knowledge). I think I may try and ressurect this if I can generate enough interest.

Very interesting and useful. Thanks. I think I'll blogroll you if that's ok

OnlyWire dot com and GetBookmark dot com are 2 very handy tools (free of charge). They each allows u to submit to about 15+ bookmarking sites all at one go. But, u must first create your account with each bookmarking site. This can be quite tedious and boring. The other 2 drawbacks are the sites listed are quite limited (some in the list are not even working) and it does not allow u to use keyword phrase as tag.

For those who are seriously looking at tapping the power of web 2.0 social bookmarking sites to generate good traffic and back links, u may want to do as what I have done => invest in software to automate the job. The one I am using right now is pretty neat. It has more sites listed compared to OnlyWire and it can create accounts for u automatically. It also accepts keyword phrase as tag and let u create multiple profiles so that u do not leave too much footprint on the net in case u are accused of spamming. The best part I like about it is that the software gets updated almost every single month to keep in pace with the latest development of some of the bookmarking sites.
