usefull or not?

Crowdsourcing - Is crowdsourciing useful? well it can be useful is it is used the right way. To spread the word about a certain design is not always a good idea as it is very easy those days to take ideas over and to give the idea your own name. It gets really hard to ectually prove that the product or idea is yours.

Crowdfunding - Is crowdfunding useful? I personally think it is really useful, as you interact with people and make people aware of the idea. Then you can get their interrest and people can use if they want to contribute on this or not.

The input of other designers and other users can be very good, but we have to be very careful in every step we take offcourse. There are some designers who like to keep the product for themselfs and don’t like others to help them or to add ideas onto the persons idea.

cons: The product doesn’t stay an one person’s product, it becomes part of many people, and it gets really general and it isn’t known who the designer was in the first place. It has to be a product which is extreemly attractive to people because it has to make people enthausiastic about it to want to work on the product.

pros: How more people work on the idea/product how easier it gets to continue with the product/idea, without money it is bassically impossible to produce anything these days, so with the crowdfunding it is easier to promote the product and then see who wants to contribute on it and who wants to spread the word and help making this product become real.
