Wikinomics and the Wiki Economy

wikinomics - the bookHeading to work today I was reading the Metro newspaper “aka the London Bible” and in it I read an article entitled Wikinomics.

Back at home this eveing I Googled Wikinomics and got this site http://www.wikinomics.com/.  I was intrigued so I read on. 

Basically this site is about the book that explains what wikinomics is and how you can prosper  in a world where new communications technologies are democratizing the creation of value”.

If you don’t understand what wikis are, a good place to start is at the original Wikipedia (http://www.wikipedia.org) site started by Jimmy Wales.  It was the first large scale collaboration to build the world’s largest encyclopedia. 

The Wikipedia inspired a whole bunch of other similar collaborations in travel, entertainement, and other niches from engineering to marketing and even SEO.

I will be buying the Wikinomics book soon and will review it once I finished reading it, so stay tuned…
