"The Wikiklesia Project is an experiment in on-line collaborative publishing. The format is virtual, self-organizing, participatory - from purpose to publication in just a few weeks. Wikiklesia may be the world’s first self-perpetuating nomadic business model: raising money for charities - giving voice to emerging writers and artists - generating a continuous stream of new anthologies covering all manner of relevant topics. Nobody remains in control. There is no board of directors. The franchise changes hands as quickly as new projects are created.
Can a publishing organization thrive without centralized leadership? Is perpetual, self-organizing book publishing possible? Can literary quality be maintained in a distributed publishing paradigm? We’ve created Wikiklesia to answer these kinds of questions." (source: I've been reading volume 1 of this ebook, Voices of the Virtual World, and am finding it fascinating reading. Lots of fodder for the contemplative, the sociologist, the theologian...ok, so it's right up my alley! You can check out a list of the chapter headings and abstracts here . The book is available for purchase both online and in paperback at
