This week’s HotSite is Code Book, the place where Lawrence Lessig is 
leading an undprecedented experiment in group publishing,  by offering 
his work as the first book to be collectively updated using Wiki technology.

Lawrence Lessig first published Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace in 
1999. After five years in print and five years of changes in law, 
technology, and the context in which they reside, Code needs an update. 
But rather than do this alone, Professor Lessig is using this wiki to 
open the editing process to all, to draw upon the creativity and 
knowledge of the community. This is an online, collaborative book 
update; a first of its kind.

Once the the project nears completion, Professor Lessig will take the 
contents of this wiki and ready it for publication. The resulting book, 
Code v.2, will be published in late 2005 by Basic Books. All royalties, 
including the book advance, will be donated to Creative Commons.
