Pierre Levy is a major theoretician whose work has been cited by Mark Poster in What's the Matter with the Internet, by Brian Massumi in Parables for the Virtual, by Mark B. N. Hansen, in New Philosophy for New Media. Anyone who questions his standing does not know the field.
- i agree, but where is the discussion page? where are the other contributions from the other editors? capi 05:12, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
Hi, I've never participated in Wikipedia editing and don't plan to get started, but I ran up on this Lévy page and thought I could add something. He merits a wikipedia entry, as anyone who reads in cybertheory will know something of his work. It looks like you need stable outside sources to demonstrate this.
There is a nice timeline of cybertheory at http://www.artmuseum.net/w2vr/timeline/timeline.html One of Levy's books is on that timeline, which happens to be very selective.
His work is cited in the Companion to Digital Humanities, article on Robotic Poetics, newly available at http:// www.digitalhumanities.org/companion/
There is an interview with him at http://www.connected.org/learn/levy.html
Switch Journal has published an entire project of his work: http://switch.sjsu.edu/nextswitch/switch_engine/front/front.php?cat=48
Several talks and discussions of his have been archived at the web net museum: http://webnetmuseum.org/html/en/reflexion/reflexion_en.htm
and at MediaMente http://www.mediamente.rai.it/mmold/english/bibliote/biografi/l/levy.htm
There has been at least one academic article devoted to analyzing his work: Cochran, Terry. "Thinking at the Edge of the Galaxy: Pierre Lévy's World Projection." boundary 2, Vol. 26, No. 3. (Autumn, 1999), pp. 63-85. Stable URL: http://links.jstor.org/sici?sici=0190-3659%28199923%2926%3A3%3C63%3ATATEOT%3E2.0.CO%3B2-5
Do you think this will do for evidence of notability? Granted, he's not Karl Marx or even Groucho, but hi sname circulates frequently in cybertheory discussions and a reliable summary of his work would be helpful.
As it stands, Knowledge space is pretty bad. But apparently it is a legitimate term, used by Pierre Lévy in Collective Intelligence. Could someone here verify this, and offer a hand to that article? Banno 23:57, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
I can confirm that Knowledge space is used in his book, which I've read. I'll see if I can head over there and clean it up a bit. I realize your note was put there a long time ago so things might've improved at this point. Will check. --Etherfire (talk) 17:38, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
Hi everyone! I added some quotations and a citation that defines the term knowledge space and added it to the page.  I hope that this revision is up to standard for biographies of living persons--I tried to articulate his contribution without it sounding like resume material.--StarLitLady 13:27, 18 July 2011 (UTC)
