Discussion of the idea that the wisdom of crowds could be used to evaluate academic work, including discussion of (and a link to) a commentary in Nature. I find it interesting to note that while there's a lot of commentary in the responses to the Nature article about "the mob's" lack of credentials, the writers have no hesitation to comment on a phenomenon they have obviously not investigated. One wonders, additionally, how many peers review articles that are beyond their competence to comprehend.
