Please believe in the wisdom of our crowd.

I definitely don’t spend a lot of time talking about politics here.

I know we see things differently.

I know the problems are infinitely complex.

I’ve seen the results. I’ve seen the math at a company I helped build, Inkling, that provides a software tool enabling the wisdom of crowds for companies and consumers.

We do make better decisions when we apply our wisdom together.

Please vote.

And encourage your friends to.
