For the next few days I will be reading Wealth of Networks: how social production transforms markets and freedom by Yochai Benkler. The following are analysis questions I will like to answer by reading this book:
- According to Benkler, how is the internet changing society? Are these changes positive or negative? What are the pros and cons?
- How does Benkler’s theory of “social production” and “peer production” effect existing markets such as production companies?
- With the boom of social media, smart phones, and things such as apps, can “social sharing” now be considered mainstream?
