scientific american: crowdsourcing
here's an illustration that i created for the current issue (october 2010) of scientific american.
the feature article discusses web services such as chacha, and aardvark that "crowdsource", or deliver targeted answers to your questions by passing them on to a sea of strangers.
as is usually the case, it was a trill to find the issue on stands. this one was especially sweet, however, as i found the issue in the notre dame campus bookstore while on my annual football pilgrimage. cheer, cheer.
