Crowdsourcing: A Million Heads is Better than One
The “wisdom of crowds” is a popular web 2.0 buzzword, popularized by James Surowieckiâ€™s book of the same name. At its most basic, the term means that two heads are better than one, and that still more heads will yield even better results.
Some might argue that it is still the lone writer sitting in her lonely chair which makes it go round, but there is new paradigm on the block–crowdsourcing. Perhaps it is really an old idea given new impetus by the advent of the rocket we call the Internet.
However you look at it, read this article and begin to appreciate the extent to which this term is fast becoming an article of faith in the webbed community.
