SwarmSketch and Cumulative Design

At SwarmSketch, users... "contribute a small amount of line per visit, then they are given the opportunity to vote on the opacity of lines submitted by other users. By voting, users moderate the input of other users, judging the quality of each line. The darkness of each line is the average of all its previous votes."

"We are currently sketching "Bird Flu", come in and contribute a line."

The "Links" page of SwarmSketch is essential. It houses some classics and obscure "cumulative design projects."

This kind of programing, I think, is a very telling trend. I hope it will ultimately lead to better search AI and better natural communciation.
