New book: Internet Success by Charles Schweik and Robert English

Professor and NCDG Associate Director Charles Schweik and former NCDG research fellow Robert English have published Internet Success: A Study of Open-Source Software Commons (MIT Press, 2012). Nobel prize winner, Elinor Ostrom, wrote: “Charles Schweik and Robert English have written a book that illustrates, for scholars and Ph.D. students around the world, the challenge of undertaking careful research on the intellectual commons and then summarizing it in a responsible manner. The final chapter will be of substantial importance to anyone thinking of studying how individuals develop creative settings for jointly producing a common good. I strongly recommend this outstanding book.”
