Today everything and everyone is connected and crowd sourced.

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.
