Started[edit]

Created stub, but needs addition of the major criticism the book has received (from Larry Lessig, among others). --ZimZalaBim talk 04:46, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Signpost review[edit]

Would Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/2007-07-16/Keen review qualify for an external link/mention? Richard001 (talk) 23:59, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

I think so, but mostly because I came to the article in the hopes that someone would have linked to it, 'cause I couldn't find my own darned article ;-) More seriously, I have a PILE of notes I made around here that I'll see if I can assemble less opinionatively, and I'd suggest that the links I provided at the time, and the discussion page of the review will point you at some worthy links. Also, thank you for helping a girl out with the link there! --Thespian (talk) 07:26, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Contents of the book[edit]

Took a stab at summarizing his mainpoints. I probably missed out on some things and might have messed up things I did include, but there it is for what it's worth. 129.120.177.8 (talk) 17:58, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Noble amateur redirect[edit]

Noble amateur currently redirects here. I think it has a much wider context, and deserves its own article. WP:SOFIXIT, I know, but for now I wonder if it shouldn't redirect somewhere else? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 21:10, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
