During the last weekend in October CommunityCamp will again be held in Berlin. This themed BarCamp will bring together community managers as well as others interested in this and related topics for an open exchange.
BarCamp OWL (Ostwestfalen-Lippe) took place last weekend the same time as CrowdConf. Though was smaller in size and dealt less with crowdsourcing BarCamp was certainly not less interesting.
As soon as you walked into the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco you could feel the enthusiasm of the participants of the very first CrowdConf. Everyone was very excited and the noise level from the animated conversations was unusually high, even though it was very early in the morning.
Newly minted Clickworkers are asked right upon registration to enter information into their profile; information such as their language abilities and interests. Of course anyone can go back and fill this information in at a later time but it is important not to completely forget to do it and leave this information blank. Why not? Qualification tests and jobs are offered based upon the data found in the Clickworker’s profile.
