Crowdsourcing has found yet another new function. A new website called eventful allows users to start a ‘demand’ for their favorite artist to come to their city and perform. The idea is that if a particular area creates enough demand, booking agents will take notice and stop through on tour.
In addition to creating a ‘demand,’ the site also allows users to search for events of all categories and share them with their friends. The site’s underlying technology has been dubbed EVBD (the Events and Venues Database):
a software and data platform for exchanging, searching, indexing, and publishing millions of events, venues, calendars, and related information worldwide.
We like the idea of creating a ‘demand,’ but the site is a bit overwhelming with seemingly endless lists of categories ranging from performing arts, music, and conferences to religion and spirituality, and even events for your pets.
Great concept, but might like to see it being used in a more niche field.
