The crowd is changing social media design as much as its changing anything – well, everything else, really. The great thing that many of businesses are actively learning that crowdsourcing is not just good for basic services, it's good for ideas and creativity.

To kick start 2013, we're creating a new event for business builders. It's a cooking class. That's right. We're calling it our Master Business Bake Up series. At every event, a business leader will teach a business 'recipe' that that he or she will ‘cook’ on the day, in under 90 minutes. Can you help us choose a logo?

AppVillage will democratise app development, making a potential app creator of you and me. It will take an idea from anybody, evaluate it and then, if found to possess commercial appeal, create the “process and management required to take these concepts from ideation to reality.” Of course, that includes marketing the app.

Cowards & Giants - it sounds like just another week in Australian talkback radio. But, it's not. It's an idea for a story for children, developed by two mates, Mat and Tom. The idea is to use the power of the internet to create a movie.

More than 5,000 entrants have submitted designs to the latest DesignCrowd contest. Using the innovative Sydney-based DesignCrowd crowdsourcing service, TimesSquare.com, has offered up a $10,000 prize for anyone who can provide a new logo. Check out the current logo, it really needs to be changed!

With the economy in its current state and the US dollar near parity, geo-arbitrage opportunities abound. Combine that with the power of cloud based technologies and tools, like DropBox, ScreenSteps, Dictamous and Screenflow, and it has suddenly become far easier than any time in history to employ and manage skilled staff and freelancers from all corners of the globe.

There's not enough time in the day to get all the niggling, annoying, mundane tasks done. Plus, you want to build your brand. You know that it's essential to work 'on' your business and not just 'in' it. But where can you find the time? If this sounds familiar, don't fret. You are not alone! It's time to outsource, offshore, crowdsource and maybe even make yourself redundant!

99designs, the world’s largest design marketplace, has gone and got itself a localised website. The announcement comes snapping at the heels of its whopping $35 million first-round capital investment from Accel Partners – the fellas what invested in Facebook, Dropbox and Etsy -- and the launch of local rival DesignCrowd.

Dave Gray, co-author of "Gamestorming," the 2010 book about collaboration for innovators, says the cubicle layout of your average business office is great for efficiency, but the worst possible design for creativity. In this video, Gray lays out the basics of gamestorming. It's worth a look for anyone hoping to spawn the Next Big Thing.

It's been five years since Anthill's inaugural Cool Company Awards. Initially launched as a 'piss-take' to poke fun at a plethora of magazine award programs at the time, the 'cools' were quickly (and unexpectedly) embraced by Anthill readers... with the force and finesse of Arthur Fonzarilli's fist on a dukebox. (Ehhhhh!) But, unfortunately, five years on, our logo is beginning to look... well... not-so-cool. Could it be time for a crowdsourced makeover?

Outsourcing big kahuna Freelancer.com has finally signaled its intent to muscle in on 99design’s graphic design crowdsourcing turf, stumping up US$20,000 in cash-money for creative types. Has Australia become the new global crowdsourcing hub?
