Isaacson crowdsources editing for new book about the digital age

Walter Isaacson, the author of a bestselling biography of Steve Jobs, is posting chapters of his next book online for crowdsourced edits. The as-yet-untitled book, which he describes as “a narrative about the people who helped to create the most important innovations of the digital age,” argues that innovation is often the result of collaboration, rather than a single inventor. In keeping with that idea, he has posted sections on websites including LiveJournal, Scribd, and asked for “notes, comments, [and] corrections.”
