Good Faith Collaboration The Culture of Wikipedia

Joseph Michael Reagle Jr.
Foreword by Lawrence Lessig
The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA.

Wikipedia’s style of collaborative production has been lauded, lambasted, and satirized. Despite unease over its implications for the character (and quality) of knowledge, Wikipedia has brought us closer than ever to a realization of the century-old pursuit of a universal encyclopedia. Good Faith Collaboration: The Culture of Wikipedia is a rich ethnographic portrayal of Wikipedia’s historical roots, collaborative culture, and much debated legacy.
