A connection at Penguin Publishing let us know about a Million Penguins, the world's first community written book. The Wiki site launched this week. Already, the novel is starting to fill out. Maybe now you can become the famous author you always wanted to be -- only without the fame.
Implications - This experiment truly brings the concept of crowdsourcing to a whole new level of creativity. I'm sure a lot of people will find reward in participating in something like this (even if other contributors can edit and remove your work). Would you ever be interested in contributing to something like this? I think it is a one in a lifetime opportunity!
