On Individual Wisdom

Kathy Sierra talks about how she misinterpreted the Wisdom of Crowds idea. Great read. I had a similar AHA moment about it myself recently, which is why I still consider it the most crucial idea of Web 2.0. The Wisdom of Crowds is not about group decision making. It’s about aggregating individual decisions. Big difference.
