SXSW 2009 – Is Spec Work Evil? The Online Creative Community

Take a look at this interesting panel discussion from SXSW09. The topic is spec work, but the new twist on the conversation this year is crowdsourcing – the trend where clients ask a community of designers to compete with each other in order to “win” the project by providing spec creative.

What are your thoughts? What is your best argument against companies like LogoWorks and Crowdspring (featured on this panel)?
