Collective intelligence

The notion of collective intelligence, a term coined by the French philosopher Pierre Levy, continues to engage original thinkers. In France, Jean-François Noubel has published a paper called Collective Intelligence: The Invisible Revolution . And Michel BauwensI has sent me the draft of an essay on Peer to peer as the premise of a new mode of civilization . I'm on the road right now so act only, on this occasion, as a signpost.

I found your blog via FC. We are doing some interesting things with enterprise blogging Ideascape - that harnesses the collective wisdom of employees, customers, et al in large businesses. What used to bubble under the surface, ideas, thoughts, etc. are now in plain view within the company. I am amazed at how long and how much people held back out of fear, mistrust, and apathy. Indeed, there is a new awakening.
