.My concern is with Social Engineering, Macro-social marketing, Social Manipulation. The fact that you choose to play self-aggrandizing minds games is
of little concern to me. But thanks for disclosing and clarifying your motives.
Here Come the Crowd-Sorcerers: How Technology is Disrupting the Humanitarian
Space and How Easy It Is
Posted on July 27, 2010
I’ve recently been cc’d on an email thread in which a humanitarian group has started to “air out some latent issues and frustrations”
vis-a-vis the use of crowdsourcing in emergencies. I applaud them for speaking up and credit them for coining the fantastic term “crowd-sorcerers”
which is brilliant!
Is that what I was doing lol. For someone who is concerned with, social engineering, macro-social marketing, social manipulation. You really do not
see that I was in fact supporting what you wrote. By giving a real world ATS specific example of, social engineering, macro-social marketing, and
social manipulation on a micro level. ATS is a social media site.
Then you further my point by posting an article about how twitter is being used to show how the science behind how and why ideas spread on social
media is a growing area of research. Further proving your crowd-sorcery has nothing to do with crowd-sourcing. That you were using a bit of clever
word play, and crowd-sorcery of your own, which is fine. That your crowd-sorcery is about the manipulation of social media to sell an idea.
I am not attacking you. I have been agreeing with you the whole time lol. Yet you still see it as an attack on your premise and not an agreement. You
have the right to believe that. So this will be the last I post in this thread. Because I want more people to see your point and learn about this
stuff. If you think my every post is attacking you or self-aggrandizing minds games, that might not be accomplished.
So great thread and sorry you did not see what I was doing. I should of been blunt instead of using crowd-sorcery of my own as a real world teaching
example, I guess.
