Thanks to the geniuses at ThinkStudio that brought us the direct economy matrix, we’re able to provide a chart that better explains what crowdsourced placemaking is, when people have a direct hand in shaping their built environment.
As in the direct economy matrix, the x-axis represents progressive levels of interactivity, and the y-axis displays progressive levels of knowledge, as explained in The creative economy = the â€˜direct economy”. Notice how raw data really doesn’t add up to anything, while true tangible results only happens at the interactivity level of co-creation involving collective intelligence and resources, and the knowledge level of logic, when you understand enough of something that you can capture this into a logical model (e.g. Wikipedia’s structure) that produces tangible results.
