In case some of you haven't seen that yet on Kurzweilai.net : http://www.kurzweila...t-peer-reviewed , I post here this impressive project :
If wherever we encountered new information, sentence by sentence, frame by frame, we could easily know the best thinking on it.
If we had confidence that this represented the combined wisdom of the most informed people--not as anointed by editors, but as weighed over time by our peers, objectively, statistically and transparently.
If this created a powerful incentive for people to ensure that their works met a higher standard, and made it perceptibly harder to spread information that didn't meet that standard.
These goals are possible with today's technologies.
They are the objectives of Hypothes.is.
The project seems quite promising with support from a lot of key players. Check it on http://hypothes.is/
You can donate (they have already about $70'000 of donation, with even a matching gift now), tweet that or only reserve your name to show your support.
