Future of the platform

  • I believe the current context of having the platform as a research focused system is a good direction. With a research focus we will be able to remain focused that the key contribution of the system will be to improve the current state of crowd sourcing, and use the scientific method to be certain that our improvement have validity to them. However, I do agree with many others that the logistics of running a massive service, in which if this project is successful it will most likely become such a service, the matters of maintenance and support services will become more necessary. In that case I understand the need to switch over to a platform/startup format, however I hope that with its roots in research, the mentality of a research group can stay within those who continue working to make the platform fitted for its users and not for its business goals.
