Crowd sourcing

Crowd sourcing

Crowdsourcing is a distributed problem-solving and production model. Problems are broadcast to an unknown group of solvers in the form of an open call for solutions. The crowd submits solutions. The crowd also sorts through the solutions, finding the best ones. - Wikipedia
