It’s my birthday today. A special occasion, sure – only happens once a year. So look at me, I’m all kinds of special right now.
I think for my birthday dinner tonight, I’m going to go to Hub 51 for drinks to start the night. Next, I’ll follow that with appetizers at Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba – I love tapas! Then we’ll grab entrees at Everest… and finally: dessert at The Paris Club. Sounds like a dreamy, dreamy evening.
At the end of the evening, I will choose which course I enjoyed the most – and that’s the only one I’ll pay for. What about the other three courses you ask? Hey – thanks for your submissions, but I liked one course better than the others, so you’re not getting paid for your efforts.
Because it isn’t.
This is crowdsourcing in a nutshell. This is what spec work is to a professional designer.
Think about it.
