Needless to say, Ville and Jeff Howe (inventor of the term crowdsourcing) had a â€śfrankâ€ť post-speech chat (Iâ€™m relieved to report both of them came away unharmed).

… about steam trains.
But perhaps itâ€™s time to think again when it comes to non-professionals. Jeff Howe, one of crowdsourcingâ€™s founding fathers, certainly thinks so. In his recent book Crowdsourcing: Why the power of the crowd is driving the future of business, Howe devotes a whole chapter to the valuable role played by amateurs through history. Looking back nearly 400 years, he discusses how the â€śgentleman scientistsâ€ť of the 17th century collaborated, by mail, to form a major …
