Human Resource Business Partner Volunteer for Implicit Marginalia at CrowdDoing

Implicit Marginalia is an approach to the future of reading that was invented and developed by Reframe It (relevant patents issued to Reframe It as US2011/0252052A1 & US7801951 B2). It is an automated, patented method for annotating any given sentence, phrase or passage in a text with comments made about that sentence, phrase or passage in a vast body of later literature (over any specified period of time), prioritized according to the user’s preferences. Every time a sentence, phrase or passage from a particular text is quoted or cited in a later text, a clip from the later text is turned into a comment inserted in the earlier text immediately next to the passage being quoted or cited. The commentaries generated by Implicit Marginalia reveal what various communities of readers have taken from any given sentence, phrase or passage over time, the uses they have made of it, and the implications they have drawn. Whenever the reader chooses to pause and ponder the meanings or resonances of any sentence, phrase or passage he or she has just read, commentary reflecting how others have interpreted or used that sentence, phrase or passage will be immediately at hand, in the book’s margin.

The result is more than a fundamentally different way to read: it is also a fundamentally different way to monetize hundreds of titles in a publisher’s backlist. Reframe It’s patented method for culling Implicit Marginalia from both proprietary and public-domain works would allow a publisher to reissue new electronic editions of all of the titles on their backlist that have elicited substantial commentary over time.

The new electronic editions, annotated with as many as tens of thousands of paragraphs from tens of thousands of other books, would be sought after by students, teachers, and anyone deeply engaged by the text. Consider that most annotated editions today bring a handful of texts into the conversation on any given page. Implicit Marginalia would allow any given sentence, phrase or passage in the book to be informed by hundreds of sources in which it was cited, quoted or discussed. The density of critical commentary available to the reader would be of an order of magnitude unheard of in current annotated editions. (Of course, the reader would not need to be distracted by any commentary at all, if he or she chose not to be: Implicit Marginalia attached to a sentence, phrase or passage would appear only when summoned by the reader.) Interestingly, all the data needed to mine large numbers of Implicit Marginalia comments already exists based on the architecture of norms of quotation, description, footnotes, and end notes.

Automated mechanisms to gather and prioritize the marginalia can be developed (sorting comments by their date, by the kinds of publications in which they appeared, etc.) along with crowdsourced mechanisms for social prioritization, and curated methods that prioritize comments from well-known respected sources and experts.

Paused when King Lear Super Annotated edition got on track to 16,000 pages.

Zero global market for 16,000 page edition of king lear we were informed.

Implicit Marginalia Salience Engine- rather than book from hundreds of years ago becoming 16,000 pages, what if we filter the annotations in the 16,000 pages for those that make a case that is buried today.

Bring Adam Smith Social Enterprise Edition, Adam Smith Climate Change edition, Adam Smith Impact Investors edition, etc. to life. Wealth of Nations and Theory on Moral Sentiments are anchor points. All dialogue since can filtered for whether they relate to the thesis that Adam Smith was the opposite of Milton Friedman version of economics. Ie the interest of stakeholders is of integral concern from the designer of what we’ve referred to as capitalism. We can take a big history perspective and elevate to salience this buried narrative. Adam Smith can be re-read in this way, we can change the narrative of Adam Smith, and increase and accelerate the embrace of social enterprise, impact investing, and systems change compatible points of view on capitalism.

Rescue Adam Smith from shareholder capitalism to reclaim Adam Smith for stakeholder capitalism via Implicit Marginalia!

Implicit marginalia is taking a later text that quotes an earlier text and annotating the earlier text. We aim to use this to build an addition of Adam Smith’s classic works Wealth of Nations and Theory on Moral Sentiments based on social impact themes that show up in each to show if or if not Adam Smith was for social entrepreneurship, social impact, social innovation, and impact investing rather than Milton Friedman’s limitless capitalism.

Any time Adam Smith gets quoted, we can identify the part of Adam Smith that quote applies to and connect implicit marginalia to it- the later text that quotes and cites Adam Smith. We will end up with an annotated edition of Adam Smith’s works based only on the impact theme relevant annotations. Identifying all the texts on the web and in books and in scholarly articles that quote and cite Adam Smith can begin with web crawling, data mining and other techniques. CrowdDoing is collaborating on this initiative. CrowdDoing is a joint initaitive of Match4Action Foundation and Reframe It.

"Workers destroy their own human capital. Smith notes that workers who are paid for piece-work labor harder than those who work for a salary. Incentives matter. But Smith goes on:

Workmen, on the contrary, when they are liberally paid by the piece, are very apt to over-work themselves, and to ruin their health and constitution in a few years. A carpenter in London, and in some other places, is not supposed to last in his utmost vigour above eight years. Something of the same kind happens in many other trades, in which the workmen are paid by the piece....

The solution is an imposed limit on overall pay or work hours: [quote from Smith begins] "

[W]hen soldiers have been employed in some particular sorts of work, and liberally paid by the piece, their officers have frequently been obliged to stipulate with the undertaker, that they should not be allowed to earn above a certain sum every day, according to the rate at which they were paid. Till this stipulation was made, mutual emulation and the desire of greater gain, frequently prompted them to over-work themselves, and to hurt their health by excessive labour... If masters would always listen to the dictates of reason and humanity , they have frequently occasion rather to moderate, than to animate the application of many of their workmen. It will be found, I believe, in every sort of trade, that the man who works so moderately, as to be able to work constantly, not only preserves his health the longest, but, in the course of the year, executes the greatest quantity of work ( Wealth of Nations , I.viii, p. 100 in Liberty Fund edition, emphasis added)."

Quote above is from Smith. Quote below is from commentator:

In the passages above, Smith argues that a) incentives matter; and b) that workers are irrational and don't understand their own interests. If they did, they would moderate their efforts so as to produce over the course of a year and preserve their mental and physical health. A caring and wise employer has more time to study these matters and should moderate work efforts!

Application: A New Kind of Study Guide

This methodology has important implications for books central to the humanities and social sciences given its potential to illuminate any text that is used in a range of different contexts. For the study-aid market this can turn classic texts into digital contextual textbooks.

Application: Book Advertising and Sales

Implicit Marginalia can also directly drive book sales. Some readers might be interested in purchasing the books from which the Implicit Marginalia in the book at hand are culled. Many of the Implicit Marginalia comments can end with affiliate links to booksellers offering to sell the book from which that comment was drawn. Since a single electronic edition might quote from 10,000 later books, and perhaps 1000 of those comments would be attached to bookseller affiliate links, the potential revenue sources could add up. (Partnering with a publisher could create further opportunities for contextual advertising inside of books based on links to buy other books in the publisher's backlist that have quoted the book being read.)

Application: Knowledge Management and Education

The Implicit Marginalia product will sit within a suite of other annotation functionality allowing for professional-grade contextual user-generated content. Readers can highlight text and add their own annotations, sharing these annotations privately with individuals they select or publicly for the world. Readers can earn reputation based on the way other readers have reacted to their comments and commented on the passage.

Implicit Marginalia lets readers observe ongoing professional or educational conversations about a particular document at a highly granular, sentence-by-sentence level.

Mission believes in the exponential potential of global collaboration to de-risk and develop social innovations and leverage diverse capabilities to realize shared goals. CrowdDoing leverages multiple intervention points and under-utilized capacities to achieve operating leverage for systems change. CrowdDoing is able to achieve this kind of compound leverage for impact across our portfolio areas from homelessness prevention, prevention derivatives, health benefits from spending time in nature, medicinal foods for stress and anxiety, and preventing isolation as a side effect of virtual volunteerism. All of these are anticipatory solutions which allow people to get ahead of their risks of catastrophe. CrowdDoing leverages under-utilized capacities to make it feasible for our solutions to potentially reach the scale of the problems we face together.


CrowdDoing works in sustainability, anti-poverty, public health, education, and research. We aim to address UN Sustainable Development Goals and beyond through our social innovation efforts.

CrowdDoing approaches each collective challenge through the lens of operating leverage for systems change via social innovation. This allows us to identify different under-utilized capacities that could make addressing problems in our society more feasible in the future.

At CrowdDoing, each of us adopts a dimension of a larger challenge. We collaborate within our convenient feasibility on this with others. We don’t expect ourselves to have every expertise. We rely on each-other.

We include broad participation by micro-leaders in systemic change through specific social innovations that we can build together.


Service learning focused on social innovation can be efficient simultaneously at achieving impact, and at teaching skills needed in the future. Service learning and skilled volunteering have demonstrably been efficient and effective approaches to helping individuals acquire skills for a VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity) world in a diversity of fields-from human resources to engineering to project management to data science.

CrowdDoing aims to scale participation through skilled volunteering and service learning opportunities to help enterprises and institutions foster social innovation. Better mental health, physical health and productivity among employees are among the intrinsic incentives that prompt companies to adopt employee volunteer programs. LearniNng, creating impact, and achieving mental and physical health benefits are intrinsic incentives that prompt employees to participate in volunteering & service learning programs.

Research shows professional development is most effective when hands on through challenging / new projects and experiences.


Micro-leadership at CrowdDoing means that while each person adopts a dimension of responsibility for a collective problem in our society, each of us does not take on the worry about the whole. We take on a level of responsibility that is safe for each of us to have comfort in.

Service learning combines learning objectives with community service in order to provide a pragmatic, progressive learning experience while meeting societal needs. Service learning and skilled volunteering helps to bridge skill & social innovation gaps to achieve sustainable development goals.
