Collective Intelligence Enabled By The Internet
Last week, I conducted an experiment on Medium. In the post entitled “Can Collective Intelligence Solve This One For Me?”, I asked the community to find the name of an old obscure movie. I gave very little details about the movie, if any.
I shared the post sometime after lunch. Answers popped in during the afternoon on Twitter and Quibb. Only 5 hours laters, there was a strong consensus on the movie’s title.
It was “Child’s Play”, an episode from “Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense” known as “Fox Mystery Theater” in the US.
Don’t underestimate the power of collective intelligence enabled by the Internet.

Only a Spanish version of the movie can be found online, but it’s worth watching anyway!
