[News] Blogging Detects 'Bugs' as Effectively as Open Source Developers

Blogging as open source fact checking

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source software community often quotes the Linus Law. "With
| enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow." That is, having multiple people
| poring over your lines of code is an excellent way find errors. It's not
| like a thousand people are collaboratively writing database software, but
| all those people are looking over the shoulders of the few who are.
| Blogs are doing that to media...
| How these organizations respond may very well point to their future
| success. Will they see these legion bloggers as adversaries? (Think of
| how Microsoft "competes" with Linux.) Or will they find inspiration in,
| say, the Digg model, harnessing countless tiny points of participation
| to harness the collective intelligence of their audience and feeding it
| back into their product?
