Re: <nettime> Analysis Without Analysis. Review of Clay Shirky's "Here Comes Everybody"

I think we have to be careful about assigning him originality or  
novelty to commons based peer production, because as a mode of  
production it is mighty similar to many craft-houses some of which we  
still have today.   the name including 'peer production' might be the  
only thing novel there, and it is at best completely misleading on the  
term 'peer', unless his being being ironic and pointing toward the  
class differentiation within the peerage, heh.
