Crowdsourcing crowdsourcing

I hate to post over the year's most important blog posting — the special issue on open innovation — but today teaching about open and user innovation at KGI I saw a news item that couldn’t resist.

While we were discussing Karim Lakhani’s InnoCentive teaching case, one of my students went to the website and spotted this on the Challenge Center:
Submit a compelling descriptor of Crowdsourcing Innovation

TAGS: Business/Entrepreneurship, Ideation
AWARD: $500 USD | DEADLINE: 3/31/12 | ACTIVE SOLVERS: 685 | POSTED: 3/01/12

InnoCentive will award one (1) Solver with a $500 Challenge award for providing the most compelling descriptor of Crowdsourcing Innovation that does not incorporate “prizes” and “contests”.

I'm sure blog readers would be well qualified to win this competition (assuming there aren’t too many submissions already).
