With so many people willing to participate in large, networked endeavors, maybe we really are on the cusp of finding new ways to fund and perform scientific research.
Just stumbled upon a review by Pam. Saw a different book reviewed by her. She wrote succinctly and other reviewers liked her style too. I decided to see more of her reviews. The block quote above from her review reminds me of the book Wikinomics. I haven’t read it yet but my understanding is that it is about bringing diverse and perhaps unorganized people together with digital technologies to work on and solve problems.
I like books narrated by Walter Dixon. While checking his catalog of narrated books I came upon the book American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America on Audible which is where is saw a review by Pam.
Notes: Added both Reinventing Discover and American Nations to my Audible Wish List.
