The Wisdom of the Crowds

Derek Powazek says:

"People are brilliant in groups. Crowds can also be wise. The famous example is to ask a group of people to guess the number of coins in a jar. Any single individual's answer will most likely be wrong. But if you take all the answers and average them together, most of the time, they're right."
