HBS using Wikipedia as a lab rat

Harvard Business School’s Andrew McAfee points to a new HBS case study of Wikipedia that he and Karim Lakhani have completed and have made available free to everyone.

One of Andrew’s case discussion points is today’s quote of the day: “(Has) Wikipedia really…become a ‘post-revolutionary Bolshevik Soviet,’ with an inscrutable central power structure wielding control over a legion of workers?”

Bonus: From my Flickr set of photos from last August’s Wikimania, a photo of Andrew and Karim (and others).
