Crowdsourcing Explodes in China

Dec 14 2010   By Julie Blair Pitts

While crowdsourcing may seem like a relatively new concept for English-speaking countries it appears that the concept is exploding in China. DesignCrowd CEO Alec Lynch gave a keynote video presentation at the first global Witkey and Crowdsourcing Conference in Guangzhou China.  He compared crowdsourcing in China to crowdsourcing in English-speaking countries indicating that China is utilizing crowdsourcing more rampantly than its global business counterparts.

Lynch cited two examples to drive the point that English speaking countries could learn from and possibly partner with China in this area.  Zhubajie is a Chinese crowdsourcing site that has four million workers.  While it is difficult to determine what exactly a Chinese site crowdsources it appears that they have extensive crowdsourced content.  Another Chinese crowdsourcing site that boasts 2.8 million workers is TaskCN.

The presentation focused predominately on witkey which means “crowdsourcing website” in Chinese and how Western companies could possibly collaborate with Chinese companies in several areas one of which is graphic design.
