Crooked Timber on Benkler’s “The Wealth of Networks”

The Crooked Timber blog has organized an online “seminar” to discuss the important new book by Yochai Benkler, entitled The Wealth of Networks. The book is still sitting on my guilt-inducing summer reading pile (formerly the spring reading pile), but Benkler’s exciting presentation of its premise at the Berkman Center last month, combined with the enthusiasm of a lot of smart people for the book, confirm that I have to turn to it right away. The Crooked Timber seminar — really more of a symposium, since it involves set-piece critiques and a response from Benkler — should whet the appetite.
