Crowdsourcing: Who’s doing it?

August 14th, 2009 by Cambrian House

Hey, you should be reading our blog over at Chaordix!

This crowdsourcing game isn’t like it was three years ago when we started. We’ve long moved past the point of being able to count all of the crowdsourcing initiatives on our fingers. To this end, we put together a handy list for us to make sure we stay on top of all the cool things going on.

Turns out, it is a pretty good resource, so we thought we’d share it with everyone. It is so great to see so many different initiatives involving crowdsourcing!

Chaordix – all grown up and making us proud

April 21st, 2009 by Cambrian House

Chaordix

The great part about posting something on our blog is that we pop up in your RSS reader, then you stop by to say hello :)

An update on Cambrian House: We’ve just launched a new version of our Chaordix crowdsourcing platform for enterprises. We’ve added a bunch of new capabilities and services to our bag of tricks for Chaordix, making it even easier for companies to seek and interpret input from customers, employees and other partners. (And I should say thanks to all of you because it was your participation at Cambrian House that has helped us hone Chaordix into a very impressive product.)

So if you are in a company that is looking to tap crowds for the business intelligence to innovate, improve operations, and reduce the risks of competing in the marketplace, you should definitely check it out and get in touch.

I know, I know. Why did we pick another name that it is hard to type into a browser? Go to the site and check out the history behind the name.

Make no mistake, we’re in this to win

March 9th, 2009 by Cambrian House

Cambrian House does the Price is Right

Much like that lady on the Price is Right whose large cleavage is only eclipsed by her even-larger bouffant, we take this game very seriously. We often joke around, but we are hell-bent about succeeding in business. We are also seriously scattered with too much on our plates. And so, we’d like to announce we’re dividing in order to conquer.

We have two amazing projects underway: Chaordix and Gwabs (please don’t make us talk about Prezzle just now). And we have two amazing leaders: Shelley and MJ. Our experiments in both cloning and human fusion are running behind so we’re going old school – giving one person, one focus. Shelley is working hard at Chaordix, under the Cambrian House umbrella and MJ is working hard at Gwabs, under the SundayLABS umbrella.

Contrary to popular belief, the good times can’t go on forever, especially in these dire economic times. We think Gwabs is really cool, but it’s been on the “almost done” pile for far too long. The team on Gwabs is giving 110%, but on their last play of the game. After this Hail Mary Pass, we’d like to laser focus on Chaordix only.

For more information, please see our press release.
