I’m very excited to say that my new book, “Reinventing Discovery: The New Era of Networked Science”, has just been released!
The book is about networked science: the use of online tools to transform the way science is done. In the book I make the case that networked science has the potential to dramatically speed up the rate of scientific discovery, not just in one field, but across all of science. Furthermore, it won’t just speed up discovery, but will actually amplify our collective intelligence, expanding the range of scientific problems which can be attacked at all."
Howard Rheingold's insight:
I can't recommend this book highly enough -- six stars on a scale of five. The most detailed, well scaffolded with examples and supporting research, and well-written how-to do collective intelligence in the field of science. It's about open science as much as collective intelligence, but understanding each field illuminates understanding of the other.
