The Wealth of Networks

by Henry on April 15, 2006

Yale University Press has just released Yochai Benkler’s _The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom_. You can buy it at “Powells”:http://www.powells.com/partner/29956/s?kw=Wealth%20of%20Networks%20Benkler, and Amazon, but it’s also available from Benkler under “Creative Commons”:http://www.benkler.org/wealth_of_networks/index.php/Main_Page with an associated wiki. There’ll be more about this book on CT soon – for the moment, suffice to say that I think that this is a really important book, not only for people interested in the politics of technology, but for people interested in left or liberal politics more generally. It fizzes with ideas.
