Script Programmers as Value Co-creators

Website owners are gradually realising the benets of viewing customers as co-creators of value. Unfortunately, current development models oer little help in understanding and managing this new form of value co-creation. The Metropolis Model has recently identied three realms of roles for crowdsourcing: the kernel (providing the core functionality), the periphery (the partners) and the masses (the end users). Technically wise, the periphery requires mechanisms for the commons to suggest, develop and maintain additional services on top of the kernel. This work concretizes the Metropolis Model for crowdsourced
website development based on user scripts. We outline some technical challenges to foster the relationship between end users (the masses), scripters (the periphery) and the web site (the kernel) on the way to promote script-based crowdsourcing.
