    Collective intelligence is the topic of the RU3 project. Actualy developed in french, but soon in english, with the collaboration of researchers, designers, sociologists, and simples users. I hope you come to see our stuff about that, and hope you can collaborate to these ideas. The project is developed on a wiki : CraoWiki on http://wiki.crao.net/index.php/ProjetRu3 and the french web site is RU3.org on http://ru3.org/ru3/projet/index.html
