Interesting article in this week's New Scientist  (7 May) on the use of 
a collaborative wiki environment Polymath (see 
http://michaelnielsen.org/polymath1/index.php?title=Main_Page) to solve 
a particular mathematical problem - although the article doesn't seem to 
be on-line yet. The article has an interesting graphic on the different 
contributions, showing that even some non-experts provided some 
significant comments - some more so than published figures in the field. 
It also emphasises the need for someone to organize and moderate the work.    (01)
