    9:00 – 9:25                Keynote                       

    9:30 – 10:30             Panel Discussion: The evolution of the crowd

    How can we move to a more a dynamic and nuanced understanding of different kinds of “crowds” and how and when to engage with them?

    Experience has taught us that there is no such thing as one “crowd”. Rather, there are many types of crowd and they are far from static. In the aftermath of a crisis, for example, there are many types of informal actors. Citizen reporters, expert practitioners, volunteer technologists, paid micro-taskers, and members of diapora with local knowledge, are all distinct “crowds.” All have different roles to play in different contexts and all require different tools, incentives and support. The panel will explore new strategic approaches to help organizations engage with and combine the right crowds with the right tools to maximize impact.
