Greg, yes I do think those definitions sound plausible.

The context comes from one of your links to a Roger Ehrenberg post:

I suppose I could have raised the same question on his blog, but I figured that since you were there, you would know what he was talking about.

Hmm. There are other forms of gaming the system other than injecting bad (or insincere) data. Example: The Church of Scientology somehow manages to get reviews critical of their books removed from Amazon. It is not known how they do this, but it is obvious that it is happening.

Hi, Jeremy. Sorry, I'm not sure. I don't think I mentioned those terms.

Let me try to guess though if that might be useful. I think that both "active" and "explicit" refer to systems where people explicitly take some action (like editing Wikipedia or sharing with someone else in the network). I think that both "implicit" and "passive" would refer to the system sharing between people without requiring any action (like anonymously sharing what people have clicked on, bought, or tagged).

What do you think? I don't quite have the context here, so I am guessing. Do you think those definitions fit?

Greg, thanks for the writeup and thanks for the additional pointers.

Could I ask you the small favor of filling in some gaps of my knowledge? Or at least gaps in my knowledge of terminology? What was meant when people talked about "active versus passive" collective intelligence? And what was meant by the implicit vs. explicit (top down vs. bottom up?) ends of collective intelligence?

Hey Greg,

Just sending a thank you note for these sort of posts. They're great for those of us that don't make it to these conferences. Thanks again.
