The Open Collaboration Encyclopedia

Version 2.3

Ed. Alpha Lo and Alden Bevington

A New Cultural Literacy

    We bring with us into the future many ideas from the past about how to build the world, how to relate with each other, how to think, how to create, how to share. Advancements in our understanding of what really works, and works for everyone not just a few - what constitutes sustainability - is rapidly sweeping away long-held certainties. The playing field has had its gravity rules flipped. As a result a new game is emerging.

    What if you were told that every traditional model of ownership, hierarchy, economics, politics, organization, education, and evolution you had ever taken for granted could be turned on its head, had been turned on its head, and was now in many cases working better than it did before? We imagine you would say, “Where can I get some?”.

The Open Collaboration Encyclopedia

In that case, we offer the Open Collaboration Encyclopedia, a pioneering open access publishing project. It is a heartfelt, dyed-in-the-wool, emergent bureau-adhocracy, a meme in the form of a book, an open standard, a landmark overturning of a long-standing informational cascade. A user-generated, iterative encyclopedia of innovative information architecture which any individual, business, cooperative, or chaordic group can put into immediate and rewarding use. For above terms please see pages 5, 313, 162, 93, 280, 324, 499, 245, 236, and 62.

    Our Ebook is a downloadable and printable file. Our  open textbook, offered free of charge, can be read online with no download or printing. For the beautiful softcover, a world in a gift to your home, office, family, colleagues or friends, its a great addition to any life.
