Wired wonk Douglas Rushkoff authored 'Exit Strategy,' a Biblical parable of Joseph retold in a contemporary, net-economy setting. Then Rushkoff went a step further by making 'Exit Strategy' an open-source novel. Not only is the text free online, but anybody may annotate the online version. The idea is to pretend you are an anthropologist 200 years from now. You've just unearthed an antique novel called 'Exit Strategy.' You must add footnotes explaining its cryptic contents to the people of 2300 AD. How will future societies interpret our nascent networked era? You decide. Clever concept; interesting reading. - Curt Cloninger
