The new owners are communities and freelance experts (nothing new, Malone and Yates have been talking about it for years, among others), but the real thing is in experiments like this. Great effort.

I wish you luck and much attention for the experiment.
You might rembember that Wikipedia began as Nupedia , which was a peer reviewed kind of wikipedia. Unfourtunately very few wanted to send complete Articles for cerrection and the project ceased. But your correction of an already written book may be more poular.
Greetings, Myra

No one can know whether this will work. But if if does, it could be very interesting.

This is probably going to work. In addition to the evidence that has been accumulating about the Internet in recent years, there are long traditions of this sort of collaborative annotation in Asia. Large discussions always lead to lots of useful ideas. As long as the Chapter Captains are not politically correct nazis, this should improve even a great work like Code.

I would like to add a Lessig book to my must reads for 2005. Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Troy Worman

I would like to draw to your attention to “Incubadora”, an innovative web service run by Fapesp, the S�o Paulo State Research Founding Agency in Brazil. The incubadora is designed to allow the easy cooperative creation of digital contents through the Web. I believe that it might be handy to run your project on. Incubadora is a SourceForge-like site where each project also gets a Plone environment (a very rich content management system) to build its home page. The URL is http://incubadora.fapesp.br and on the Plone side you create a wiki with just a couple of clicks. One possible disatvantage is that the service and the documentation are run in Portuguese only at this time (though both the Plone and the Sourceforge-like interfaces can be adjusted to English).

Many academic books are written that way in practice anyway, so indeed why not just be upfront about the process? That is, the Research Assistants, err, “Chapter Captains”, do the initial drafts, which are then edited to the final book. Being public about it is a praiseworthy innovation.
