A thoughtful critique of crowd-sourced design contests?

Looking for thoughtful essays and/or screeds on the evils of "crowd-sourced" design contests, or design by committee in general?

I'm hoping to convince some very gifted writers and journalists of the folly of commissioning a user-submitted design contest. Of course these sorts of things always generate outrage among designers when they come about, but I can't think of any sustained arguments against them to which I can link.
Do you have a favorite thoughtful critique of crowd-sourcing, spec work, or the democratization of design? Thanks, MeFites!
