The Contours of Crowd Capability

In “The Contours of Crowd Capability” our follow up to the original piece on Crowd Capital, we delve deeper into the crowd capability construct we conceptualized. Here is the abstract:

In this work we use the theory of Crowd Capital as a lens to compare and contrast a number of IS tools currently in use by organizations for crowd-engagement purposes. In doing so, we contribute to both the practitioner and research domains. For the practitioner community we provide decision-makers with a convenient and useful resource, in table-form, outlining in detail some of the differing potentialities of crowd-engaging IS. For the research community we begin to unpack some of the key properties of crowd-engaging IS, including some of the differing qualities of the crowds that these IS application engage.

The professor actually XXXX’d out the student’s name and emailed it to all of his students! See below.. what’s your take on this?
