The Future of Thinking: Learning Institutions in a Digital Age is a book about innovative, virtual institutions. It is at the same time an experiment that uses a virtual institution as part of its subject matter and as part of its pro  cess. Like such recent books as Chris Anderson’s The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More1 and McKenzie Wark’s Gamer Theory, this book had, as its beginning, a first draft hosted on a collaborative feedback and writing site. Where this book differs in some respects from others is that it uses this experiment in participatory writing as a test case for virtual institutions, learning institutions, and a new form of virtual collaborative authorship. The coalescence of meaning and method are a hallmark of participatory learning— and this book uses this participatory method to help support that meaning.
