Channel 4 on crowdsourcing

I haven’t (yet) watched the Channel 4 programme seven days but I have followed some of the coverage in the press and on the Internet – from the synopsis at http://www.channel4.com/programmes/seven-days/episode-guide/series-1/episode-2 it looks as though one distinctive aspect of this reality TV show is that its participants’ lives are being crowdsourced.  The programme has been billed as including new ways to combine TV with the Internet, and the a whole range of web 2 type tools is being used to invite viewers to offer guidance to the characters.  I just hope that the participants are robust and level-headed enough to know when to ignore some of the advice that they are given
