Yet it came to innovation and the free Skimming of intelligent and creative minds. They call it Crowdsourcing. In addition, the cloud working, and the click working have established two more forms.
The cloud working end of the Freelancer pushes between companies that offer work orders, and demand a Portal. Both, providers as customers, on sites such as TopCoder, the Australian freelancer.com or the German offshoot of Elance-oDesk for their respective Profiles. On Elance-oDesk, more than 30,000 business profiles. A Freelancer can quickly get to jobs that match your qualifications.

A small consolation for all Cloud and on – Clickworker: On the free platform Turkopticon, you can assess the jobs offering companies with regard to Fairness and contractual compliance. A little more equality of Arms between potential Cloud and clickworkers, and providers.
