Good Faith Collaboration
|Author||Joseph M. Reagle Jr.|
Good Faith Collaboration: The Culture of Wikipedia is a 2010 book by Joseph M. Reagle Jr. (a Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School), published by MIT Press. The foreword is by Lawrence Lessig.
Good Faith Collaboration is based on Reagle's PhD dissertation. The book is a study of the history of Wikipedia, its real life and theoretical precursors, and the culture which has developed around it. Reagle explores the history of collaboration, touching on the methods of the Quakers, the World Brain envisaged by H. G. Wells and Paul Otlet's Universal Repository.
The book received a positive review from Cory Doctorow, who said that Reagle "offers a compelling case that Wikipedia's most fascinating and unprecedented aspect isn't the encyclopedia itself – rather, it's the collaborative culture that underpins it: brawling, self-reflexive, funny, serious, and full-tilt committed to the project."
