fyi. I ain't involved, altho i do contribute to Wikipedia.
(Curious, that they didn't mention that in the announcement below.)
If anyone does contribute, I'd be curious as to the experience.

Those of you at MIT and Wharton, in particular, may already be familiar with this. For those of you working on social networks, it looks like a very interesting experiment:
Mar 21 - Apr 3
Last month we invited Knowledge@Wharton readers to participate in a novel
initiative in book publishing. The project, tentatively called We Are
Smarter Than Me, is an experiment to see whether a large community of
business people can jointly author a book of the same name. Pearson will
publish the book later this year. The book focuses on ways in which
companies are learning to leverage social networks and the power of
communities to improve their performance by allowing customers or others
to take over functions typically performed by experts. Every contributor
will be credited as an author, and will help direct royalties to charity.
While several readers have already signed on, we are looking for more
participants. We encourage you to explore this opportunity by going to the
We Are Smarter website. http://www.wearesmarter.org/
