Wil Harris posted a nice interview-style article for the INQUIRER yesterday – he interviews Jason Calacanis, founder and CEO of the new search engine Mahalo. Jason talks about why he thinks the Internet is broken and what has to happen to fix it.
Well, I think the wisdom of the crowds is beneficial, for sure. But I think that there is a limitation to everybody having a voice in something. If everybody has a voice, then you end up with something average. If everybody participated in the making of a movie, it wouldn’t be so good. But if you give Scorcese total control, it can end up brilliant – so there’s really a limit to how far you can push the wisdom of crowds. — Jason Calacanis
