Collective Intelligence vs. The Wisdom of Crowds

the Wisdom of Crowds vs. Collective Intelligence:

"The Wisdom of Crowds model focuses on isolated inputs: the Collective Intelligence model focuses on the process of knowledge production. (...) Both "collective intelligence" and "the wisdom of crowds" offer productive models for game design but we will get nowhere if we confuse the two. They represent very different accounts for knowledge production in the digital age and they will result in very different design choices."
