Hello fellow Internet researchers, my book *Good Faith Collaboration: The Culture of Wikipedia* (2010, The MIT Press) is now available. While I have long anticipated its publication, it's hard to believe the day is finally here!

In any case, I've included a brief description below and a link to the blog announcement. There, you can leave a comment, follow the links to the book's webpage which includes the foreword, preface, introduction, notes and bibliography; I'll also link to reviews and interviews. Stay tuned to the blog for information about the upcoming book talk.


Feel free to forward this announcement and forgive me if I've sent a duplicate or sent it too far afield.


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.
