TED's Chris Anderson on "Crowd Accelerated Innovation"

Chris Anderson, curator of the TED Conference, discusses a new phenomenon he calls Crowd Accelerated Innovation. The internet continues to expand the reach of global community and helps spur innovation because it brings together the following characteristics.

 

  • Crowd - A group of people sharing a common interest. The more people the more potential innovators.
  • Light - Clear, open, visibility of what the best people in the crowd are capable of.
  • Desire - Innovation isn't easy!

 

Sites like YouTube and organizations like TED are great examples of Crowd Accelerated Innovation at work.
