I have a lot to catch up on …but this just rose to the top of the list!! I went to see a lecture by Yale Professor Yochai Benkler yesterday. He has a fantastic way of conceptualizing and presenting the ideas of peer-production and a commons based culture! What is even BETTER is the fact that he makes his publications available on his website…including is book The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom. DEAR READERS, YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THIS BOOK…I know most of you and I know you would enjoy having this on your hard drive. For a shorter starting point you may also want to try Common Wisdom: Peer Production of Educational Materials….let’s start a discussion on this…or a book club or chapter club or something…it’s really good stuff from a different perspective!!!
