Crowdsouring and World War I

I find the most interesting things on Reddit sometimes....frankly it's addicting.  This recent post about crowd sourcing is a great example of how regular citizens from around the world (Redditors) can come together and compile information on a topic that years ago would have taken Encyclopedia Britannica months to publish to the public.

This crowdsourcing project, which is still in progress by the way, is an attempt to catalog, in drawn image form, all of the small arms used by the countries involved in World War I.  All The Guns  Just another way to show the effect of crowdsourcing and the collaborative and open medium created by interactive communities like Reddit.
