Coming up in May will be Tehran's first conference on crowdsourcing, bringing together some of the biggest people in the country's tech industry.   Crowdsourcing is the practice of obtaining needed services, ideas or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people and especially from the online community rather than from traditional employees or suppliers. The one-day summit on May 20 aims to spark ideas among participants on how the Internet can be a catalyst for social productivity, engage Iranian decision-makers and entrepreneurs, and connect them with top experts in crowdsourcing and crowdfunding experts in the region and beyond. The dynamic nature of the Internet means new ideas, methods and terms are constantly emerging. The event is hosted by Epi Ludvik Nekaj, an Albanian emigre who currently resides in Singapore.
