Wednesday, August 19 | Mission Possible & “Crowdsourcing”

August 17, 2009 at 2:51 pm | Posted in Coming Up | 2 Comments

We’ll talk about the local effort of several media organizations in Charlotte (including WFAE) to address our community’s needs and encourage the city’s citizens to think of ways to meet those needs. This effort is called Mission Possible, and right now the coalition is asking for members of the community to take an online survey that asks for their ideas on how to better meet the needs of people in Charlotte. This project, and those like it around the country are examples of crowdsourcing. We’ll talk about exactly what that is, and about some of the ideas that are coming in via the survey that may help meet Charlotte’s community needs.
