Online Collaboration Successful Project Examples

  1. Gamers solve AIDS puzzle that scientists had been trying to solve for over a decade. This problem that baffled scientists was solved by puzzle solving gamers in 10 days! You can read more about it here: http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/notrocketscience/2011/09/18/computer-gamers-solve-problem-in-aids-research-that-puzzled-scientists-for-years/   The project is ongoing, this is their site: http://fold.it/portal/
  2. This link will take you to Tim Burton’s Stainboy short story. The story was developed through a writing technique called Cadavre Exquis, in which many collaborators contribute collectively to write a story. Twitter was used as the communication media. http://www.burtonstory.com/connect.php Stainboy
  3. My wife, who is a psychologist, told me about this next project that demonstrates good use of online collaboration. The project is called The Charter for Compassion. Thousands of people from over 100 countries participated and added their voice to the writing of this Charter. A so called Council of Conscience was in charge of sorting, reviewing, and crafting the final version of the Charter. You can learn more about this project at http://charterforcompassion.org
