Abstract

I have been waiting for this book for a long time. The Wikipedia community which is one of the largest online collaboration projects in history has survived to the point of rigorous academic study. This book shows a comprehensive picture how the project and its community comes about in day-to-day social interactions using contradictory organisational structures. The main body of the book describes Wikipedia organisational culture, its structures, explicit rules, control and governance mechanisms, leadership, role of trust and conflict resolution models. Jemielniak, as a scholar and a Wikipedia native insider, has the credibility to tell us their story
