Crowd Sourcing in Math?

April 9, 2010 9:50:50.997

Now this is interesting - a professor decides that an easier proof to a mathematical problem exists, but thus far, it's just beyond his grasp. What does he do? He posts on it, and invites comments. Over the course of a year, enough knowledgeable and interested people collaborate in the comments that he gets his simpler proof.

Maybe crowd sourcing isn't just for flash mobs...
