Reinventing Discovery is a book by Michael Nielsen that focuses on the idea of using online tools to help amplify collective intelligence and collaboration in the fields of science research and problem solving. As scientists, engineers and mathematicians utilize this concept to efficiently find solutions to almost unsolvable porblems, policies and traditional rules prevent others to share their research for fear of competitors and loss of grants and funds. I really enjoyed this book, it’s a good break from marketing and advertising social strategies. It also shows the importance of online tools to help build networked communities and open science.
