A topic covered in Damians class on 19th Nov.

The wisdom of crowds is a book written by James Surowiecki about the aggregation of information in groups. The theory is that large groups of people make better decisions. In practice we saw this by each of us guessing Damians age and finding the average. In terms of our integrated project, this theory would suggest that the larger the number of surveys/other data collecting methods, the better the data.
