I truly is a great way. It helps people who don't have access to much funds. The risk of posting their idea is very low, so I will expect it to grow significantly over the years.

Laurie, 

In that case, I will wait and see how it evolves. Sometimes the original plans have to be changed according to the response of the users, though.

I don't believe that was Pinterest's original plan. Not after researching the company's investors. I believe the original plan was to turn the site into a marketing platform after they ramped up adoption, similar to Twitter and Facebook.

Laurie, 

What makes me skeptical about all this Pinterest issue is that the site started as a place where people could have "collections" of their favorite things all grouped under categories, but still a hobby place. If marketers start tranforming the place in a marketing arena, is the meaning of the site going to change? Of course it wouldn't be the first place a site transforms from its original idea.

Hi Susan,

I don't believe people will specifically log into Pinterest to click on an image, but yes I do believe if they're in the site they will click on an image they like. Marketers and businesses need to prepare for that click through by developing well optimized landing pages attached to those images.

Hi, Laurie 

Do you believe that people are going to log in to Pinterest to click-through to the manufacturers Websites?

I think intellectual rights management will be important. If the original designers do not get to keep the patents and do not get the royalty for their products, they may not find it attractive enough to participate. They may want to launch the finished product themselves because that may be a better option financially.

I think this is one of the best uses of crowdsourcing that I have seen. Great idea, indeed. This will certainly help the company come up with out-of-the-box ideas that their paid engineers may not have been able to think about.

I honestly didn't give a second thought to the term crowd sourcing in the article, had to go back to look it up.

It is my first time encountring the term too, and i think its just a great model, and yes this is a unique implementation of that model.

This model has helped me understand the concept of "crowdsourcing" better. Whne I first saw the term, it was very confusing on how the process actually works. This may be one of the simpler applications of crowdsourcing, but I get the idea.
