Fairly empty book. An experiment by the author to co-write a book on co-writing by making it available on the web. ( )

We think, therefore we are. Charles Leadbeater schetst een enthousiast & postieve cocreatie-economie, waarbij de positie van passieve consument wordt ingenomen door die van meedenkende producent. Evenzo verwordt de user de designer. Het is een positief boek omdat het vooral over delen gaat: "The web's significance is that it makes sharing central to the dynamism of economies that have hitherto been built on private ownership." Het delen van ideeen lijkt centraal te staan en vereist een open economie: "they treat ideas and knowledge (...) as if they were gifts" en een open houding: "we will have to learn ow to feel secure, while sharing more of our ideas and identity with other people".

De boodschap, utopisch haast, kent ook de nodige kritiek. Dat weet Charles Leadbeater ook en daarom zijn er een paar paragrafen aan die kritiek gewijd. Deze paragrafen overtuigen net niet. Ook het hoofdstuk over de 'we-think business' is lastig te lezen. Desalniettemin predikt Leadbeather, de internet/share/create boodschap met verve in We think. Als je ook maar enigszins geinteresseerd in internetgemeenschappen en -economie, moeten dit boek kennen. ( )

U bent wat u deelt. Dat is de nieuwe ethiek van de wereld gecreëerd door websites als LinkedIn, YouTube, Hyves en Wikipedia. 'We-think' beschrijft de weergaloze vloedgolf van creativiteit en vernieuwing die inmiddels op gang is gekomen en onvermoede krachten herbergt. Want wat betekent dit voor de manier waarop we ons leven, onze maatschappij en onze organisaties inrichten?

De generatie die opgroeit met internet wil niet alleen toekijken, maar juist actief meedoen. Hun motto is: wij denken dus wij bestaan. Massaproductie en -consumptie hebben hun langste tijd gehad. Dit is het We-think-tijdperk waarin massaparticipatie voorop staat, klanten niet meer passief consumeren en het internet wereldwijd wordt ingezet voor meer openheid en gelijkheid.

De auteur voert u mee door deze nieuwe cultuur en laat u zien hoe er het maximale uit kunt halen voor uzelf en uw organisatie. Het boek is het resultaat van een uniek online experiment van gezamenlijke creativiteit waarbij honderden mensen over de hele wereld betrokken waren.

Charles Leadbetter gives a fascinating tour through the possibilities that collaboration on the web opens up. He talks through the new ethos of "you are what you share", and explains how the principle of open-source can be harnessed not simply for software and other intellectual and creative pursuits, but also in fields as diverse as engineering, education and healthcare. Leadbetter's central premise is that the more people who have access to the information and tools needed to develop an idea, the greater the chances of a truly innovative leap being made.

I found the idea fascinating. I saw Leadbetter giving a talk about this topic at the UKSG conference in April this year, and it was hard not to get caught up in his obvious enthusiasm, which is as infectious in his writing as it is in his public speaking. I do think that the barriers that intellectual property law in its current form present to the widespread adoption of We-Think deserved more than the cursory treatment they get in the book. Much as I agree that IP law is long overdue for a thorough overhaul, it is nonetheless what we have to work with at the moment. I do however accept that Leadbetter's aim was probably not to provide a blueprint for how We-Think is to succeed, but to provoke thought and discussion, and in that he has certainly succeeded. I would take much of what he says with a pinch of salt - he does at times sound perilously close to the "utopian cretin" that an early commenter on the first draft, published online, accused him of being. This isn't to suggest that Leadbetter's ideas aren't worthy of consideration though - I would recommend anyone with an interest in communication, information management and creativity to pick up this book.

Charles Leadbeater's book We-Think was published in the UK last year; it will be released in the US by Profile Books this summer and I have to say I'll be fascinated to see how it's received. It's an intriguing and unconventional book, and I think at least some of the ideas it contains are worth thinking seriously about as we continue to move into the new world that the web has wrought.

Leadbeater defines "we-think" as his "term to comprehend how we think, play, work and create, together, en masse, thanks to the web" (p. 19). He calls his book "a defence of sharing, particularly the sharing of ideas" (p. 6) and suggests that by promoting "participation, recognition, [and] collaboration" we can change the way we perform certain tasks and, at least theoretically, harness the world's energy to improve our culture and advance knowledge, equality, and personal freedom at the same time. At root, he suggests, he seeks to determine how we can "make the most of the web's potential" (p. 5).

The ideal we-think process involves a quintet of components: a core group of workers, contributions by many others, connections between the participants, collaboration, and, ultimately, creation of some tangible product or idea. He describes various examples of how these components have successfully meshed, from resources (like Wikipedia and the Encyclopedia of Life) to games (like Second Life, World of Warcraft and the Sims) to scientific progress (various research projects) and political participation (the most recent and perhaps more important example, Obama's campaign, was just getting underway when the book was written).

Successful implementation of we-think principles involves what Leadbeater suggests is a delicate balance of "gathering self-interest for mututally beneficial ends" (p. xii). People are looking to "connect to ideas they [find] interesting for them, in their lives," and by allowing them to contribute to a greater goal in a way where they can do what they want at their own pace while feeling like their contributions are being recognized, we-think can work wonders. As I read I kept coming back to my own experiences with the Legacy Libraries project at LibraryThing ... while I coordinate the group and facilitate discussions and projects (and answer questions), it is a much larger group who work on the various library projects and bring them to fruition). The Legacy project, and perhaps even LibraryThing in general with its various components (including Common Knowledge) seem to be really concrete examples of a community's use of we-think concepts in a meaningful and extremely productive way.

Leadbeater takes the opportunity to muse about far-reaching implications of his ideas, discussing various applications of we-think to fields from education to librarianship to health care and science. In all of those areas and more I think there are opportunities to think in new and more engaging ways, and some of Leadbeater's ideas may be of use. Since librarianship is the one I can speak to, I will say that I don't entirely agree with the way the author suggests the field is headed, but I do know that a more open, collaborative process must be our goal, rather than something to be dreaded (not that most librarians are dreading it, I think many are just trying to figure out, along with the rest of us, how to make it work).

There are the obligatory devil's advocate arguments here, but Leadbeater mostly shrugs them off while admitting that we still don't really know where the web is taking us and that it is possible that we will squander our opportunities to use it wisely. By necessity, any book of this sort, which comments on hyper-current trends, is out of date even before it appears in print. Some of Leadbeater's examples have already fallen out of vogue, and some things have happened since which aren't discussed. There are several additional very minor errors, and the book does tend to be rather UK-centric (it was, to be fair, published there first), but on the whole it is an argument worth examining and perhaps putting to use under certain conditions.
