'A meticulous and judicious examination of the way [Wikipedia] is put together. An extraordinary world is unveiled...' --London Evening Standard, October 22, 2009
From the Publisher
In a world increasingly shaped by the desire for instant gratification, which now extends beyond mere rampant consumerism into the realm of information, Wikipedia is king. Andrew Dalby's timely book looks beyond the hype of mass collaboration and exposes this phenomenon for what it really is and what it means for all of us - for better and for worse.
