Review: Vipul Ved Prakash harnessed "the power of us" to identify and block spam when he developed Vipul's Razor, which later evolved into Cloudmark's desktop-based tools. These tools plug into e-mail clients and Web browsers, enabling users to conveniently report spam e-mail or fraudulent Web sites. This effective, decentralized spam/fraud detection and protection system epitomizes "give, and it shall be given unto you."

Review: Interesting article. It raises many questions.Isn't it disconcerting that crowds and or mobs might lead to aberrations such as holocausts? Perhaps most instances are not as severe, but is such a system really worthy?How might such "crowd" or "mob" action be useful for actual decision-making (and not just as a barometer of popular sentiment)? Is "popular demand" an indicator of good judgement? Or is specific expertise required for many, most decisions? How can we tell which form of decision-making is most appropriate?

Review: By stating Kryptonite was "trying to downplay a blogger video..." and noting it as consumers "turning against them," it really misdirects what is actually happening. People are finally, collectively demanding to receive what they have paid for, and companies are crying foul. Kryptonite didn't "lose" $10 million; they avoided the expense for as long as they could. They should be licking their chops. Companies that provide collective services online also bring the remarketing of services as well. Emerging companies (and individuals) are cleaning up on others' old junk. There is a very high demand to spend less by buying used, and buying it online adds a glamour to it that makes it acceptable in the minds of the masses. The collective mentality (not to discount the Internet's role at all) is taking the fear and embarrasement out of most of these things, making people more open to new realms of consumerism.

Review: It's interesting how Google and the big players are seeing how the addition of geo-location information will apply to their applications.If you take mobile phones, which are everywhere, add geo-positioning information and communication, throw in a pinch of the peer-to-peer movement and keep everything open source you will get to a very interesting scenario, indeed. Individuals power the network hosting home pages on their phones with details about themselves, what they do, and what type of people they want to meet. When two people with matching requirements are in the vicinity of each other they are alerted and can begin communicating. Take this further by adding in services from third parties like Google and a new 'Web' is born.
