My third resource is a book titled Good Faith Collaboration written by Joseph Reagle Jr. This book is more a philosophical and anthropological examination of the phenomenon of Wikipedia. The beginning chronicles the history of encyclopedias and of Wikipedia. Then, Reagle moves on to more of a reflection on the spirit and ethics of the Wikipedia community. The Wikipedia community is something of a surprise and seems to contradict the popular notion that people are inherently mean and nasty on the internet. The Wikipedia community is usually calm, collected, and civil with each other. This book made me think through some of the reasons why writing for Wikipedia could be academic in a sense. The Wikipedia community is quite demanding but it is also quite polite.
