Les savoirs profanes et l'intelligence du web

Abstract : Laymen's knowledge is becoming increasingly visible and influential, especially in environment and health fields. The Internet provides laymen with new resources that go well beyond downloading content or digitising scientific texts, as they also open up new possibilities for information and cognition. Laymen's knowledge, which is built up from open-access resources, owes its effectiveness to collective participation and the auditing methods in place. And yet, despite the considerable amount of comparative and verification work performed by these groups of " people who know ", laymen's knowledge rarely achieves the status of stable and reputable information.
