Crowd-sourcing

Help Wanted!  Please help me convince the Kittanning Borough Council that it makes ZERO sense to pay $10,000 to do what can be done with volunteers at zero cost to the taxpayers.

The answer?  Crowd-sourcing.  The issue?  How to get all of Kittanning’s ordinances online efficiently and accurately.

This website has a limitation of ____ characters per page (i.e., any Kittanning ordinance).  It has no limit on how many users create how many documents so, if enough volunteers can be found to key in the information, what is the cost?  Zero.  If other volunteers can be recruited to proofread what the others typed, what is the cost of proofreading?  Zero.  Etc, etc.

Make sense?  If yes, leave a comment.
