Crowdsource Crowdsourcing

Got a press release yesterday that ended with "Privileged and confidential information may be contained in this e-mail and any files transmitted with it are intended only for the use of the addressee."

Ah, what the hell:

"GeniusRocket, Victors and Spoils and 99 Designs are offering up the chance to re-name their industry, and turning to the crowd to do so. Having decided the name “crowdsourcing” just doesn’t fit anymore, they’re crowdsourcing the new name, with the best submission earning a cash reward."

The site should be up some time today and the project have been delayed.

Update (May 25, 2010): Victors and Spoils aren't involved. The project "has been delayed but should launch soon." - source: PR agency.

Udpdate: (May 26, 2010): The site is now up at renamecrowdsourcing.com.  It's little more than a submission form.
