The Startup Success Podcast

This week Bob and Patrick talk with Jordan Ritter, CTO of CloudCrowd, a new kind of cloudsourced labor service. What do you have when you build a system that can take typical business tasks, break them into small units of work, including quality control, and let the cloud provide labor as needed and at cost? It’s not outsourcing, and it’s not crowdsourcing, it’s an Internet-based labor operating system.

In this fascinating discussion with Jordan (co-founded of Napster and Cloudmark), we get a glimpse of what the future of global work might become: where each of us act as our own labor exchange, offering a multitude of services and quantified reputations within the cloud to the world at large.

And a quick word about our new sponsor, InfluAds. If your startup’s market is other startups, web developers and designers why not reach out to them through with a small, tasteful ad at sites they already read? That’s how InfulAds works. Act now, mention “SSP” and save 20% on you first ad buy. – ads for startups by a Startup.

We’d also like to thank Microsoft WebsiteSpark for being our first official show sponsor! Microsoft WebsiteSpark and have free Microsoft software for designers and a six month scholarship to you may be interested in. For details and how to apply, visit
