The sites and/or blog posts below have been extremely useful in compiling the lists on this wiki. I would like to stress that I am not looking to duplicate the work done in all these sites/blogs, but to consolidate them in one place. The Open Innovators list, for example, mentions crowdsourcing examples but its focus is innovation. Similarly, Peter Kim's brilliant list has examples of social media marketing out of which crowdsourced examples are a subset. I have included both those subsets in this wiki so that it is comprehensive. Though sites like YouTube and Flickr are technically crowdsourcing sites, I have not included them because to me, they are more social networks, and social networks are not in the purview of this list. I have also excluded sites that harness the expertise of a closed group of individuals, though they may be useful in their own right.
