    In a quite traditional manner I bought the book then sat with a pad of paper and a pen and read it cover to cover. As an Open University student on their ‘Innovation in e.learning’ unit I need to know this stuff. I’ve come away informed beyond the mere world of Wikis and found myself engaged by the politics, which usually leaves me cold. If you can get passed the tendency towards hyperbole in the introduction it is a fascinating, at arms length consideration of where the online world is going and what historic imbalances we are building upon out here.
