Next step in open source: Book Editing

[Link] Professor Larry Lessig’s popular book Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace has been out for a few years now.  With this book, Lessig essentially created a new language for discussing the interrelation between law and cyberspace. 

Professor Lessig has now decided to update the book and republish as a second edition.  However, rather than simply using his own knowledge, Lessig has decided to edit the book on-line as a Wiki.  He is recruiting Chapter Captains to take charge of each chapter.  The book will be published in the fall — Lessig intends on donating the proceeds to the Creative Commons.
