Using this wiki

The basic idea is to make this Wiki a place for at least five things:

  1. Collaborate on writing a summary of the ideas and claims of the book (see Table of Contents)
  2. Collaborate on writing commentaries and elaborating and refining the presentation
  3. Provide an easy platform through which to access underlying research materials:
    • those used in the book's notes
    • and resources that are useful for further research, refinement, and updating
  4. Describe, link to, and analyze examples of the phenomena the book describes
    • The purpose is not to “make the case” for the book or find “gotcha” counter examples. What we are trying to do is provide a real research tool, annotated bibliography, and platform for collaborative learning. Examples and counter-examples should be selected and described with that purpose in mind.
  5. Demonstrate and discover what is valuable in a learning platform
    • Through separate pages devoted to ideas and experiments of what can be done with an online book to make it a learning platform, we hope to expand the range of uses to which this Wiki can be available.
    • Through creative, systematic and interactive uses of this wiki, we hope to enhance our individual and collective skills & experience in a wiki world
