DailyDirt: Step Right Up And Try Your Luck…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Over the last few years, there have been plenty of crowdsourcing platforms to find solutions to difficult problems. And we’ve seen some brilliant examples of challenges solved via this method. But it doesn’t work every time (nor should anyone expect it to). Here are just a few more open contests to find some innovative answers.

By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Good point ECA.
We had a local government program to reduce energy usage.

It worked as after a year there was an announcement that the program contributed to 5% drop in energy usage for our community. The power company’s solution to this presumably long term drop in revenue was to increase the mandatory monthly connection fee. Doing some quick math and it was clear the power company total take in Cash was slight higher than before and yet we had reduced energy consumption by 5%.

Whoopie we help generated more profitable revenue for the energy company!

I am rooting for any alternative home energy solution so I can cut the power cord to my house.
