Today everything and everyone is connected and crowd sourced. In fact, all social media, from blogs, to forums, and wikis have a profound impact on how people communicate, search for information, and make decisions. For vendors, social media is no longer an experiment or a moonlighting function. Social media is now an integral part of corporate communications.

The SemiWiki business model is subscription based so there is a financial link and the SemiWiki Bloggers share in that success. Bloggers need to eat too. The point of the SemiWiki blogs, wikis, and forums are to drive traffic, feed the site analytics, and provide a real-time-feedback-loop, that is where the SemiWiki value proposition is. This is crowd sourcing, Bloggers share observations, experiences and opinions, SemiWiki members can agree or disagree, the collective knowledge of the crowd will win every time. That is social media: increasing the transparency of business, products, and people.
