from Alan and Jeff:
Watch this now:
Hillary 1984 may be the most effective and disturbing campaign ad since the George Bush the Elder showed Dukakis looking silly in a tank. The thing is, the Obama campaign insists it had nothing to do with it. (I'm assured by a trusted source that works closely with Obama that this is definitely, definitely true--Jeff) San Francisco Chronicle calls it "a watershed moment in 21st century media and political advertising." That ain't quite crowdsourcing, but it's a very short step away. The best political ad in years was user-generated (or so we believe as of now.) Look for pols to start crowdsourcing their campaign spots in the '08 election.
A little bit of fun I couldn't resist. Masters of Media appear to have gone West to surf rather than East to source, or is the joke on me?
Crowdsourcing for God—Congregations tap the power of their people here!
P2P Foundation looks at Xavier Comtesse's report, Direct Economy. It describes a consumer-know-how led economy. The first installment from an English summary and translation of the original French-language report.
Billions With Zero Knowledge didn't make any mistakes in interviewing Mr. Craig Silverman, who runs an interesting site called Regret the Error, which is sort of like outsourcing factchecking to the crowd.
