Crowdsourcing Merit Badge!
While visiting my father's house the other day, one of my old Webelos activity badges practically fell into my hand. I don't remember what the pin symbolized -- good citizenship? (Apparently it no longer exists, at least in this particular shape.) Anyway, it made me think that crowdsourcing, or collective creativity, is the kind of know-how we ought to be teaching kids today.
And it also struck me as a good omen for the success of our SXSW panel!
