Commonwealth Club - The Commonwealth Club of California

A debate with Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales and author Andrew Keen.In today's self-broadcasting culture, where amateurism is celebrated and anyone with an opinion can post a video on YouTube, change an entry on Wikipedia or publish reviews on Yelp, we increasingly turn to the collective intelligence of large numbers of people.Should we rely on the "wisdom of the crowds," trusting that they are smarter than the expert few?
