Can a Wiki Write a Novel? Ask Penguin.

Bruce Nussbaum

We are only beginning to understanding the wisdom--or folly--of crowds so this great experiment by Penguin books in getting a huge number of people around the world to actually write a novel is important.

Penguin has created a space where anyone can contribute to the narrative and anyone can edit. Traditionally, of course, the novel has been the realm of the individual, so this is a huge change, if successful. I can't wait to read it--Penguin is giving it six weeks to completion.
