This weeks post is a bit contradictory to my last few posts because i’m talking about the greatest creation of this generation: COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE
‘What is collective intelligence?’ you may be asking yourself. Well… You’re looking at it! It’s the idea people coming together and remixing content whether that be music, research, pictures, videos and anything else you can imagine.
I previously wrote about one of these remixes that was the result of collective intelligence, but there is so much for to it!
Collective intelligence brings everyone’s ideas together to make something great (most of the time). We can thank the internet for this term. The internet provides us with the tool to communicate and collaborate with others who we may not have otherwise collaborated with.
Here are some amazing results of collective intelligence.
These are a few of the less obvious examples of collective intelligence. But, most of today’s society is a result of this idea. Facebook. Google. Wikipedia (Basically everything guys).
All of these resources are possible because people have come together to share knowledge.
I wanted to dedicate a post looking at the positive side of the internet because many of my past posts have been talking about the negatives. The internet is great and I wanted to show appreciation for all the things made possible by this tool. Although there is a lot of information and we may not always get correct information, it’s important to stay thankful for all of the new resources and knowledge right at our fingertips!
