Episode 3 of Janne’s and my Verkko2 podcast is out. We’re dedicating one episode to each of Tim O’Reilly’s seven theses on Web 2.0.
The topic this time is ‘harnessing collective intelligence.’ It wasn’t hard to come up with a real-world example. The Finnish sci-fi parody film Star Wreck by director Timo Vuorensola and producer Samuli Torssonen has been downloaded over 4 million times, and translated to over 20 languages. Our studio guest Timo Vuorensola estimates over 300 people have contributed 3D models, translations, promotion, etc.
We had a chat with Timo about the future of peer-produced & peer-distributed film and wrap up with musings of how this relates to the broader change in the social nature of the internet. “If King Tut lived today, he’d build his pyramid online.”
