The wisdom of crowds

highly recommend reading this book, It is well written in an easy to follow prose, which builds throughout its chapters on the information it wishes to divulge.  Within the book you will be greeted with many examples of why the thoughts of many are better than one and i challenge you not to put its principles into action by the end of chapter one , let alone the end of the book.  One of my favorite sections refers to science and how knowledge is one of the few resources that does not diminish with use.  It details how ‘open science’ emerged with knowledge becoming increasingly non-proprietary and information being freely shared  with the public; this ties in nicely with the concepts around open-source software, of which i am a great follower.
