Crowdsourcing represents the act of a company or institution taking a function once performed by employees and outsourcing it to an undefined (and generally large) network of people in the form of an open call.Jeff Howe, Jun 2006
Cambrian House began as a crowdsourcing community using a wisdom of crowds based approach to discover new business and technology ideas. These pages are being kept online as a technology demo to showcase Chaordix™.

Legal issues getting mass access to the MLS... plus Zillow has a heatmap feature now too... ignore.
Harvest historical MLS data via the Zillow API and produce a heat map of the disparity in home values over time to identify the price trend in purchasing real estate. This is a mere visualization of existing data and the tool would be invaluable to anyone in the market for buying or selling a home as it would show clear pockets of increasing/diminishing value. In the same way a stock trader can scan a visual representation of a stock's history to make an informed decision, home buyers would be willing to pay for this type of analysis.
I was doing an animation for a jury trial trying to find a way to best illustrate the poor construction of this floor in an indian casino and I came up with the idea of plugging the height measurements at regular intervals into 3dsmax and then applying a color gradient based on slope to show the particular areas that had the worst differential. It occurred to me that home values could be plotted in the same way only with the z axis being time and the resultant heat map would represent "hot" areas of rapid change and consequently, the best opportunities for arbitrage.
