"Hey Internet, Help Us Name Our Child!" is the title of a post from Google programmer, Jason Morrison.

Nothing complex here, but it is a novel way to let complete strangers pick your unborn child's name. Here are some of the names: Ada, Alexandria, Alexis, Althea, Ozma, Athena, Cassia, Erin, Olivia (if it's a girl) or Aaron, Alexander, Dylan, Eric, Isaac, Levi, Nikolas, Sydney (if it's a boy).

Implications - Taking the Internet and using the power of crowdsourcing is a great way to save time and be efficient in a busy world. Companies can also benefit from this pattern by posing questions to consumers through platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to gain insight into products or ideas for the future.
