BBC on crowdsourcing

The piece at uk/news/business-11437839 has a neat title which sums up one way in which crowdsourcing can be effective.  However I wonder if it takes a slightly over-optimistic view of what is feasible: a creative professional should have a trained eye for what’s going to look good, and part of the key to using ideas from the crowd effectively is surely to involve professionals in a way that means that they can build on amateurs’ ideas.
