I have been thinking quite a bit about this article that appeared in the Washington Post (after reading it first in the Japan Times): The Top Pickers vs. the Pack.
While generations have looked to pundits for guidance, it has often taken a long time for their expertise to be recognized, and many have remained in obscurity. Now the Internet promises new ways to discover those who might otherwise get overlooked. And it can do so with breathtaking speed.
I think that this is just further evidence of how the internet is turning traditional ways of thinking and doing business on its head. I immediately went out and book, ‘The Wisdom of Crowds’.
