Yochai Benkler's "The Wealth of Networks"
Yesterday evening at Eyebeam Yochai Benkler launched his new book 'The Wealth of Networks : How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom.' Benkler, who is also the author of Coase's Penguin was introduced by Jonah Peretti. He laid out the topics by talking about collaborative news voting sites like Digg, non-competitive games like Second Life, distributed computing projects like NASA's Clickworkers and folksonomy-driven photo-sharing sites such as Flickr. What follows are a few partial and by all means incomplete notes of Yochai Benkler's lively, high-speed presentation.
