Dear all:

Thanks for getting me on board! I have been studying peer production
for quite a while now. For those of you who are interested, here is a
link to some of my (closed access) publications on peer production: In addition, I have
put pre-prints on SSRN:

The stance that I have tried to adopt so far in my research is that of
a disinterested observer. That is, my primary interest in peer
production is to understand how people make it work, not how I could
make it work. Nevertheless I also see that there is a lot that can be
learned through active participation, the thesis work by Martin
Michlmayr on Debian release schedules is a case in point, and I do
subscribe to the view that it is important to experiment with new
forms of peer review.

Re peer review, I don't feel I have sufficient expertise to review
papers submitted to the special issue on "Expanding the Frontiers of
Hacking", but you may want to consider Armen Khatchatourov who is
responsable for a project on Fablabs for the Institut de Recherche et
d’Innovation at Centre Pompidou.

Frankly, I don't know about my contributions in general yet, but here
is a small idea I'd like to throw to the floor: How about starting a
book review series on "Great books on Peer Production"? The model I
have in mind is the "Great books in Economic History" series at . I don't expect we'll be able to
continue this series for very long. Think of it as a reading list that
you would propose to students. What are the works that should be on it
and why?
