Wikibooks- the open-content publishing.

Like Wikipedia, Wikibooks makes use of the "wisdom of crowds."

With the availability of Wikibooks, traditional publishers are now exploring this mechanism for delivering their products.

This project 'we are smarter than me' is a collaboration between MIT's School of Management, Wharton School of Management and Shared Insights.

Jimmy Wales the founder of Wikipedia is the advisor to this project. He believes the project may usher in a new model for how book publishers can acquire, create and market their content.
