Fri, 26 Sep 2014 12:12:32 +0000http://gowers.wordpress.com/?p=251#comment-128133[…] Massively collaborative mathematics (via Terry Tao). I count myself an idealist when it comes to such ideas, just as the author of this post, and there are some well argumented points therein, but… my more recent economics background takes me back to earth. So here’s one main reason (there are others, linked particularly to the nature of problem chosen to be solved by way of such “massive collaboration”) why I think this will not work out (in Maths or any other science, for that matter, Econ included): the costs (particularly time and effort to follow such discussions, not to mention trusting the person– if at all– to monitor it all etc) would far outweigh the benefits. Unless the persons participating are far more efficient than the average (in time management & co) and, perhaps crucially, are not concerned with career building any longer… Somebody like Terry Tao perhaps, to keep it to Maths, though he does not seem overenthusiastic either :-).
