Havas Media Lab’s Director Umair Haque posted a very interesting post about the job market and the model of Netflix Prize. On his HBR post Umair calls for a new Manhattan Project that will refresh the economy.

This new project will include the launch a series of Netflix Prize-like projects in various industries – health care, transportation, energy, media, education, auto, banking. The challenge is to re-imagine these industries and transform them.

Think of groups of engineers, university professors, professionals and more, all competing and cooperating to solve the most burning issues. These groups together will create an extensive crowdsourcing effort. One that will change our world and improve it.
