Working with “niche” audiences who intensely value community media, I don’t know if I quite buy the wisdom of crowds philosophy entirely. The number theory geek in me appreciates it.

More importantly, beyond the buzzwords, Denver Open Media along with our friends at MNN are trying to come up with an innovative approach to reach people, and reach people in relavent ways.
Nothing wrong with that, right?
