    Wisdom of the Crowd

    BBC's prof. Marcus du Sautoy explains how a group of people know more than one individual. Amazing stuff! The explanation is not hard to understand, but still it is hard to belief.

    The law of averages works in some cases with a crowd and not in others, especially when the crowd is influenced by an outside source or event, then the way of thinking can be shortsighted and narrow producing unfavorable results. One might argue at that point that the crowd in no longer a crowd and considered a mob. The difference being the driving factor, rational thinking or emotional response.
