Yesterday I received a mail from Simon. It was a hint about a book that definitely is a “MUST READ”.
But – what I’ve seen is VERY good. I especially like chapter 7 about Innovation Communities – did anyone said weblog’s? Another thing – The book is COMPLETELY new – just released, but on the Internet. What does that tell you?
It tells me at least 2 things – a. Mr. Hippel doesn’t earn big bugs on book selling – who does? b. The Internet is a new channel for writers – we knew that already didn’t we?

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference “Democratizing Innovation”:
An additional reason why I chose to make the book available for free: I really think an information commons benefits us all. (in fact, I have so "drunk the Kool Aide" that I dedicated to book to "those who are building the information commons.")
I think we all owe a lot to people like Larry Lessig and James Boyle They have been hard at work building the tools we need for a sustainable information commons like the Creative Commons license I used for my book. Thanks, Guys!!!

Hi Eric – you’re right. CC is definitely the future for everyone who cares, who write and publish on the Internet.
As mentioned by mail I'm especially interested in your chapter 7 – do you have any other cases than the Open Source movement when discussing community building in innovation proceses?
All the best
