Drawing Simple Shapes

Here's a simple experiment, you get thousands of people and you tell them to draw something simple like a heart each person adding or removing one dot at a time. How do all these people work together? Can it work if some of those people are trying to be mischevious? What does it tell you about the need for group leaders? What can it tell you about other social organisms like ants or bees? How can you steer the simple task in a particular direction? When is a group too big?

What if Slashdot gets a hold of something like this? Oh, right.

Site overloaded. Oh. Slashdot. That would explain things. Hello.
