Asking for it

writeCriticism, that is. A lot of people out there in the blogosphere ask for comments and criticism, but Lawrence Lessig (the man behind Creative Commons) has gone one step further.

Mr. Lessig has created a wiki where anyone can go in and offer criticisms and counterpoints to the arguments he offers in one of his books. It’s an idea I had never thought of myself, and I’m very interested in seeing how it turns out.

This is one of the nice things about the way the web is evolving. It’s a way for us to share our opinions, true, but it’s also a way for others to share differing opinions with us.
