Lawrence Lessig has announced that his book, Code, is to be revised through an innovative collaborative process. Lessig will be posting the book chapters through a wiki, and each chapter will be managed and edited by “chapter captains”. Therefore, the book chapters can be collaboratively edited, but there is still a significant measure of editorial control. Sounds like a great idea.
Hmmmmm … I wonder if what my University would say if I attempted to do my dissertation this way.
