Debuting at the TED conference this week, Kluster is an interesting new idea site based on community involvement and very web 2.0 hive mind mentality. When you consider that wikipedia has virtually replaced encyclopedias as the primary place to get information you start realize the power that a large group of people on the web can collectively generate.
The premise of Kluster is that projects can be submitted, driven, voted upon, and executed in an open source environment, kind of like if threadless were for more than just T-shirts. While we haven’t had a chance to see the results of this yet, we think the premise is quite interesting, and hope to see what participants do with it.
