Facebook and digital sharecropping

“You probably think of them as users and their output as user generated content but its nothing less than crowdsourced data management.” – Jan Chipchase

The quote is a minor aside in the article on facial recognition but I really like the term “crowdsourced data management”. I’d also love to hear Chipchase and Nicholas Carr together on a panel — contrast with this article on ‘New frontiers in social networking‘.
