Aalto University in Finland has a new publication, "Towards Peer Production in Public Services: Cases from Finland" available for free download.
KF: An interesting book available under a reasonably new "copyfarleft" licensing arrangement. The book provides some useful insights into openness and peer/collaborative production strategies. It brings to mind the Cachalot (http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/cachalot/id458866319?mt=8) book from Duke University where expertise is crowd-sourced, peer review is managed and distribution is open-source. These new models of content creation and distribution are set to challenge the established (dis)order of publishing and distribution. Thanks to Yves Simon for the suggestion.
