The Hive Mind, part II

A week ago, I discussed The Edge's Jaron Lanier and his essay about the Hive Mind.

The Edge has published a set of responses to Lanier's essay here. My favourite comes from Cory Doctorow:

Wikipedia isn't great because it's like the Britannica. The Britannica is great at being authoritative, edited, expensive, and monolithic. Wikipedia is great at being free, brawling, universal, and instantaneous.
