  7. 7. Every Wiki Entry Counts quot;’American media has seen certain narratives form, and not just about Israel but about China, Iran and France,quot; he says. ‘We see the same stories being recycled over and over again in the mainstream media because it fits the narrative they'd created.’quot; “Wikipedia, Shankbone says, is different because it ‘covers everything’ - the Palestinian side, the Israeli side and everything in between.“ quot;’American media has seen certain narratives form, and not just about Israel but about China, Iran and France,’ he says. ‘We see the same stories being recycled over and over again in the mainstream media because it fits the narrative they'd created.’quot; He is unfazed when he hears that the entry on Israel mentions the word quot;occupationquot; nine times, whereas the entry on the Palestinian People mentions quot;terrorquot; only once. quot;It means only one thing: Israelis should be more active on Wikipedia. Instead of blaming it, they should go on the site much more, and try and change it.quot; David Shankbone (leading editor for the online encyclopedia Wikipedia) http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/937991.html

  10. 10. Collective Intelligence “networked culture gives rise to new structures of power which stem from the ability of diverse groups of people to pool knowledge, collaborate through research, debate interpretations, and through such a collaborative process, refine their understanding of the world.” Henry Jenkins http://www.henryjenkins.org/2006/11/collective_intelligence_vs_the.html -share information -correct, evaluate each other's contributions -reach consensus

  14. 14. Tapping into the wisdom of crowds through game play “What he showed was a mockup of a Star Wars Galaxies medical screen, displaying real medical imagery. Players were challenged to advance as doctors by diagnosing the cancers displayed, in an effort to capture the wisdom of crowds. The result? A typical gamer was found to be able to diagnose accurately at 60% of the rate of a trained pathologist. Pile 30 gamers on top of one another, and the averaged result is equivalent to that of a pathologist — with a total investment of around 60-100 hours per player.” -- Ralph Koster http://www.raphkoster.com/2006/01/04/treating-players-like-numbers/
