Topics for any discipline that focuses on quantitative or technical data have always depended on the datasets that were available at the time. Crowdsourcing has changed that — democratizing the data-collection process and cutting researchers’ reliance on stagnant, overused datasets. Tools like Amazon Mechanical Turk allow anyone to gather data overnight, rather than waiting years.
