Thinking About the Anti-Wisdom of Crowds

Spending an inordinate amount of time lately thinking about collective intelligence, the anti-wisdom of crowds, geographic obesity (and shareholding) clusters, etc. It’s all in preparation for CI Foo Camp up at the Google campus this Friday/Saturday.


  1. CI is indeed an interesting topic, but the more you or I or anyone else thinks about it, the more it occurs to me that individuals are the true innovators. We then share an “individual” innovation–invariably built upon someone else’s preconceived findings–with other’s that quickly add, reject, modify, embrace—voila…collective output.
