New Book: Good Faith Collaboration: The Culture of Wikipedia


Hello fellow Wikipedia 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.

 http://reagle.org/joseph/blog/social/wikipedia/annc-good-faith-collaboration

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.

The published printed book is all rights reserved. Though I'm happy to report that I will be able to release
an online version under a CC license one year from now. I will say more about this in the future, and hope it
will prove to be a model that benefits the author, publisher, and readership at large.

That sounds fair. By the way, did you hear anything on the full access 
through Google Print to books for university libraries?

PS. The book sounds great - I will be sure to grab a copy ASAP!

Re: [Foundation-l] Classifying what is on Wikipedia

Questions that affect all Wikipedias are suitable for wikipedia-l.
Research and data-related questions such as this might also be
appropriate for the research list.

Peter D - this is a fascinating question, but this thread may be more
suited to the research list until you find the technical answers you
are looking for.

Public Policy Initiative Article Quality Evaluation

  Hello Wikipedia Researchers,

  As university classes are beginning, you may have heard about the 
Wikimedia Public Policy Initiative (PPI) which has been gaining some 
media attention. I just wanted to tell you about what's going on the 
research side of the initiative. A lot of the assessment will be 
conducted through the Wikiproject: United States Public Policy. 
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_United_States_Public_Policy) 
When the Wikiproject commenced in July a quantitative version of the 1.0 
article quality metric emerged through collaboration with the active 
community members. That metric can be seen here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_United_States_Public_Policy/Assessment#Rubric

Now we are actively recruiting Wikipedians and public policy experts to 
be a part of the article assessment team for the project. These article 
assessments will be a basis for evaluation of the project's success. The 
first task of the assessment team is to run some experiments on the 
metric and see how much variation exists within the tool.

  The project's article quality assessment coincides with the release of 
the Article Feedback Tool and the PPI is serving as a pilot to introduce 
this feature. Check out: 
http://techblog.wikimedia.org/2010/09/article-feedback-pilot-edit-this-feature/  
We are hoping that a core group of Wikipedians interested in article 
assessment will emerge through participation in the PPI and will 
continue to work with the foundation in development of other article 
assessment methods, like the Article Feedback Tool.

  In keeping with Wikipedia transparency principles, a more detailed 
version of the research plan is available here: 
http://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Public_Policy_Initiative_Evaluation_and_Research

RS: New Book: Good Faith Collaboration: The Culture of Wikipedia

Congratulations Joseph! Your articles were of great help to build upon for my dissertation on Governance of online creation communities (which by the way I defended yesterday!), now I look forward to the book. I am sure it will be an important contribution to feed Wikipedia research, Mayo

Re: RS: New Book: Good Faith Collaboration: The Culture of Wikipedia

So my congratulations also to you, Mayo! Gaudeamus igitur...

I think that Wikipedians can be divided into an elder and a younger
generation. The elder are those who obtained their PhD without a
Wikipedia subject. :-)

Kind regards
Ziko
