I don’t have time to blog today…I’m preparing to fly out for the AlwaysOn Network event at Stanford…but I got this email about a very cool “wisdom of the crowds” concept where a group of 2,500 or so individuals will build and manage a new business by voting on the plan, who to hire, products to create, how to market them, etc. It’s really a wild notion. I hope some journalist will pick up on this, interview the creator, watch the creation of this business over time, and write some interesting story about it.
Here’s the email I got from the founder. I don’t know enough about it yet to endorse it, but I like the experiment at first glance:
I’ve been searching the blogosphere for people interested in entrepreneurship and unique ideas to promote something new, www.thebusinessexperiment.com. It’s an open source, “wisdom of crowds” approach to business. It may fail miserably, or it may change the way we think about business. I don’t know, but it is my attempt to get these ideas more attention. I hope you will check it out and, if you like it, register and participate.
My initial post explaining it can be found at http://www.businesspundit.com/archives/002142.htmlBest regards,Rob May
