Google Launches Crowdsourcing Tool

Google launched a new crowdsourcing tool yesterday called Google Moderator. The tool can be used by groups to determine which questions should be asked at meetings, conferences, Q&A sessions etc. Users will be able to add questions and then also vote on the questions of others. This way all the most popular and relevant questions will rise to the top. The speaker at the meeting or conference will then know which topics to focus on.

Google have apparently been using this tool internally for their own meetings, and have now decided to release it to the public.

    Would Design by Humans or springleap.com be examples of crowdsourcing?
