Learned Hand has been described as the greatest American judge not to make it to the Supreme Court. Here he is on crowdsourcing:
United States v. Associated Press
Right conclusions are more likely to be gathered out of a multitude of tongues, than through any kind of authoritative selection. To many this is, and always will be, folly; but we have staked upon it our all.
This opinion was endorsed by the Supreme Court:
The Nation's future depends upon leaders trained through wide exposure to that robust exchange of ideas which discovers truth 'out of a multitude of tongues'.
William J. Brennan Jr.. Keyishian v. Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York et al.
So can all the Americans here please stop attacking crowdsourcing.
Of course, anyone who isn't American isn't bound by American law.
Unless the US Government demands their extradition to stand trial in Texas. This post has been edited by Detective: Sun 4th March 2012, 6:26pm
