Hi Tarek, thanks for posting your comment. I agree with the general idea of “let’s try, and then test empirically” – that is actually the gist of what I am saying.
But also to question tradition. Traditional peer review has lots of problems with it. We shouldn’t assume it is better just because it has always been done like that. For example, i have tried open peer review and loved it (but Ramy finds it problematic). I would be willing to try crowdsourcing peer review if it will be OPEN, so you know who from the crowd said what. It has been done before, I believe!
I even saw someone crowdsource his “references” for applying for a job 🙂
There are some great crowds out there, and we’re lucky when we belong to a “generous” one 🙂
