Why We Need For-Profit Business Models to Support, and Benefit From, the Work of Citizen Scientsts

I've written extensively about citizen scientists working more closely with the for-profit world, and have talked frequently about ways citizen scientists can potentially monetize their work.  Though it's all good information there is a lot of it and not everyone has time to go through it all.  So I put the following video together for you all.  Learn why it is important for citizen scientists are rewarded for their efforts, how their work can benefit for-profit businesses, how that then helps the citizen scientists themselves, and ideas for ways to monetize citizen science research.

This is the first in an ongoing series that will tackle each of these issues much more closely.  So what are you waiting for...let's get started!
