Collaborative Society? Conflicts, anarchy, and disfunctions on Wikipedia

Science and Information Technology
Society and economy

Everyone knows Wikipedia relies on collaboration... Or does it? In this webinar, based on a decade of digital ethnographic research, Professor Dariusz Jemielniak at Kozminski University, is going to show conflicts, disputes, and disagreement as major constructive forces behind the largest cooperative project in humankind's history. He will position it within the framework of a collaborative society, a phenomenon of people cooperating more and more with perfect strangers, as a result of the development of communication technologies.
