Crowdsourcing is when large groups of people input information for a company or individuals personal or business use. For example, polls on instagram. Crowdsorucing is changing methods of labor on the internet. One example of this is anybody can get a job, this means that what professionals have gone to school for, amateurs can learn on the internet and even master the art too. “One consequence is that the line between professionals and amateurs is blurring. And as the line blurs, the professionals find their once-stable professions turned upside down. Seasoned journalists and credentialed experts have to compete for attention…insiders warn of the grave dangers that await us if society doesn’t restore the insiders to their previous, privileged position in society.” I think what this quote is trying to get at is anyone can do anything, and professionals are threatened by that.
