Aristotle on collective intelligence

This floated to the top of my feeds today – no idea how I have stumbled upon it since it is now past  midnight and this has been open on my desktop all day! But how fitting: I spent a good part of the day troubleshooting a couple of client issues and more than ever when “all come together… they may surpass the quality of the few best”…The actual quote from Micheal Nielsen’s blog post is below:

all come together… they may surpass – collectively and as a body, although not individually – the quality of the few best… When there are many who contribute to the process of deliberation, each can bring his share of goodness and moral prudence… some appreciate one part, some another, and all together appreciate all.

No kidding!
