Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wisdom of the Crowd is a crime solving series that makes itself relevant by focusing on technology-specific issues. Murder, rape, and other crimes are addressed. There's some sexual innuendo, words like "damn," and social drinking. Social media sites like Instagram are discussed, but within the context of the overall storyline.
Is It Any Good?
This intriguing series combines technology and community to create a relevant twist to an otherwise traditional crime series. It highlights the growing role technology has in information gathering and problem-solving, as well as some of the cultural norms that drive the tech industry, like innovation and staying ahead of the technological curve. It also shows how people can use social media and other online platforms to make positive contributions to their real-time communities.
The ongoing ethical questions surrounding the use of technology for investigative purposes, such as protecting people's right to privacy and the unfortunate and sometimes tragic consequences of posting false information online, are frequently raised. However, many of these questionable behaviors are justified by the positive outcomes that come from doing them. It may not be legally sound, but Wisdom of the Crowd is still compellingly entertaining.
