|Crowdsourcing, democracy, large conversations. Thousands to millions of brains looking at a problem trying to figure out the answer. And when they fail spectacularly, they fail spectacularly.|
So I ask the HN crowd today, how can so many brains be wrong? How can millions of brains seeing the same problem come up with the wrong answer? If a million brains failed, would a billion or a trillion brains come up with the right answer?
