Using The Internet To Do Big Things

I had posted in a earlier blog how some are using the internet to use its most powerful resource millions of participants. In that post they organize participants who shared gardening and the over abundance of product to meet the need of food pantries. The internet power lies in commerce, philanthropy, education, communication, democratization efforts to mention a few. Another power recently has come to light, manufacturing. The Star War enthusiasts recently are combining their passion to design and build a life size model of the Millennial Falcon. This is a monumental task of design and organization to maintaining quality. They do have lower expectations that this model won't actually fly at light speed. But imagine the other possibilities that could lie ahead. Could we start building buildings, by assigning participants to sent certain parts of a building and have people receive the stuff by mail and assemble it?
