          'collaborate' - Edited by Donna Lee Brien & Axel Bruns

Collaboration is a highly desirable and, increasingly, often a mandated
element in many modes of Australian (and international) research, creative
and business practice - and a factor on which successful and innovative
outcomes, as well as funding, often depend. In many cases, however,
participants in collaborative projects have a limited understanding of
collaboration (in theory and practice) beyond that of a general concept,
tossed about with nods of approval but rarely unpacked. In other fields of
DIY content production, from open source software development to the large-
scale distributed collaboration on projects such as the Wikipedia,
collaboration often happens perhaps even more intuitively, but nonetheless
produces results which can usually stand up to serious professional
scrutiny. So how, and why, do we collaborate? 

This issue of M/C Journal features case study articles from the point of
view of practitioners and researchers, innovative research about
collaborative practice, examinations of authorship credits and copyright
issues in collaborative work, including collaborative interventions like
the creative commons, and wider insights into the apparent human need for
interaction, collaboration, and what World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-
Lee has called 'intercreativity'.

providing us with ways to work together that were unimaginable even just a
decade ago, and high broadband penetration means that exchanging large
However, copyright law has, in general, failed to keep up with the amazing
progress shown by technology and human ingenuity. It is time that the
lawmakers learnt how to collaborate with the collaborators in order to
bring copyright up to date.
