If you have made it this far through my blog, it should come as no surprise to you that I am a stickler for evidence. But, in this world of information overload and where technology allows agenda, spin, fluff and misinformation to go vital with great velocity than ever before, getting the facts right has never been more difficult.
Luckily, Metafact has just launched. MetaFact sources and aggregates answers directly from thousands of independent researchers and experts to help people make evidence-based decisions. Their platform allows anyone to ask experts directly to achieve a consensus. This consensus can be spread, allowing people to make better judgements on real issues at the core of their lives.
By combining the crowd-sourcing approach adopted by Wikipedia with the rigour of science, the MetaFact community is encouraged to be curious, be open and be independent, helping to curb the insidious growth of misinformation and create a population of people who are well-informed with the right evidence.
So, have you got a burning question you wanted answered? Head along to MetFact and ask away!
