Crowdsourcing – a critique

Trying to figure out how to somehow be critical (whatever that means) to the concept and/or phenomenon of crowdsourcing.

Thinking I should read some crowd literature (Canetti, Le Bon, Tarde, Borch, Moscovici) and relate that to crowdsourcing.

Also find inspiration in

.. and google.scholar “online crowds

Critize wisdom of the crowd? (because there is not adequate mechanism for “collecting the wisdom – and certainly no neutral mechanism).
