Would be good to get your thoughts on my post over at http://internet-biz.blogspot.com/2006/07/problem-with-crowds.html
I’m not sure crowds are particularly reliable but they are the places to go when you’re looking for business…
This adds to the complexity of the argument which is a good thing.
The ‘Wisdom of Crowds’ book lacks the depth to match reality, and in many ways it has contributed heavily to distorting reality.
I believe people interested in this debate should definitely read your comment as well.
I stopped submitting my articles to digg, I found the comments distasteful. I just sub to nowpublic and reddit.
On another note, I also get tired of all the Apple fanboys on digg.
I’ll try nowpublic… I know someone had posted one of the articles here on nowpublic. I’ll check it out.
BTW, that guy who posted a bit of my bio on digg coudln’t spell censor.
I love those haters… hate, fear and idiocy are the lowest common denominator (pick one) they have in the digg crowd.
