"Crowdsourcing" - New Word for "Wisdom of the Masses?"

"Crowdsourcing Milk the masses for inspiration" "Business Week" (September 25, 2006)

Like so many other good ideas, sorting nuggets from the gravel you can get when dipping into the wisdom of the masses requires good sense and careful planning.

The main points sound familiar:

  1. "Be Focused"
  2. "Get Your Filters Right" (define, define, define)
  3. "Tap the Right Crowds"
  4. "Build Community into Social Networks"
All in all, a fairly fast read: and potentially useful.
