'Hi everyone: My name is Chris Gondek and I am the producer and host of a podcast called "The Invisible Hand". Professor Benkler is my guest for the 4/22/06 show and we discuss the ideas in "The Wealth of Networks". If you are interested in listening to the show, here is the link: http://www.theinvisiblehandpodcast.com/The_Invisible_Hand_Episode_23.mp3
An interview about Yochai Benkler's new book can be found at Openbusiness.cc
I'm parking this here temporarily, but maybe we should start an 'Audio' or 'Media' page?
Audio from Benkler's talk, "The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom", given at UC Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law on 27 April 2006: http://dream.sims.berkeley.edu/~jhall/Yochai_Benkler_Boalt_27Apr2006.mp3
User:Ownut's beginnings of a summary of this talk:
Social production is sustainable, growing, efficient Mode of Production that is bad for the current model.
Freedom, human agency and autonomy increase when owners allow workers to 'play' with otherwise proprietary resources.
Food and Drug security through Open Source farming.
The complete book has now been made available as a digitally-voiced podcast at: http://www.babblebooks.com/podcasts/WealthOfNetworks
PDB or FB2 versions of this book?
I would like to read it with FBReader. Anyone created .pdb or .fb2 versions of this book? If not, maybe I will find time to do that some day... Guaka 20:45, 25 August 2006 (PDT)
