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™.
Looking to harness the power of your crowd? Find out about Chaordix™ - technology that enables enterprises to get the most out of crowdsourcing.

For people who wish to preserve their family history the family immortality kit is a online service that simplifies the task of researching family history with the people who created it in the first place. Unlike the traditional, interview approach to compiling a biography our product addresses the fact that family dynamics, lack of time or even tragedy can prevent facts ever being discussed in the normal course of family interactions. It delivers targeted questions in a friendly format and creates a permanent, beautiful record.
The reality is - we all die and whether we like it or not along with us goes our memories.
Unless we have consciously documented or shared our life experiences with family or friends, those that follow could know very little about our history. Sometimes family dynamics, lack of time or tragedy can prevent things ever being discussed in the normal course of family interactions.
What if there was a simple, unobtrusive way to ask all the right questions in order to capture more about your family history?
Immortality can be achieved through a series of targeted, free-form and multiple-choice questions that relatives answer as best they can. Photos and other digital media can be uploaded and relatives can leave place-holders for other people to add information for them. Links can be sent to other relatives or friends asking for contributions.
With a choice of stylish print layouts, the information is beautifully published as a soft or hardcopy book, immortalising your family forever
Whilst watching my parents slowly growing older and realising that I know nowhere near as much as I want to about their personal and professional lives before I was born (or old enough to know what was going on).
Now that I have a young son, I also want to be able to pass down as much family history as I can to him and gathering all the relevant information is not an easy thing to do.
Having some means of facilitating what questions to ask, being able to easily ask these and then automatically stitching these together into a family biography would be a beautiful thing.
