I’m convinced meta-journalism is the piece missing from the Wisdom of Crowds. Doug Rushkoff explained the concept of “meta” to me years ago when we used to go to the Knicks games (those were the days), and reading Jaron Lanier’s Digital Maoism piece in Edge last week was perfectly timed for me.
In his article Jaron talks about how you can’t always trust the hive mind, and he’s right. That is why we created Netscape–to evolved the hive mind.
I’m going to keep posting stories our Netscape Anchors do on hive mind stories here:
