Kodak video camera model name
Through crowdsourcing, a technique utilizing mass collaboration to achieve a business objective, Kodak received thousands of naming suggestions via Twitter and its 1000 Words blog, for the new video camera. Two winning entries were chosen: Mike Colbourn of Williston, Vermont, entered the name ‘Play’, and Jim Culver of La Mesa, California, entered ‘Sport’. Mike and Jim won a trip to Las Vegas and the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show to join Kodak in announcing the new name.
