Book Microblurb: The Internet’s current trajectory is one of lost opportunity. Its salvation, Jonathan argues, lies in the goodwill of its millions of users. Drawing on generative technologies like Wikipedia that have so far survived their own successes, he shows how to develop new technologies and social structures that allow users to work creatively and collaboratively, avoiding the excesses and abuses of openness—and saving the Net from lockdown.
