Collaborative Futures is a book about free collaboration written collaboratively over five days during the 2010 Transmediale Festival. During the festival, I worked around the clock in a Berlin hotel room with five other writers and one programmer to write a book about the future of free collaboration; we started the process with only the title, and ended the week with a book.

The Collaborative Futures book sprint was facilitated by Adam Hyde of and authored by Mike Linksvayer, Michael MandibergMarta PeiranoAlan TonerMushon Zer-Aviv, and several additional collaborators using the Booki software ( by Aleksandar Erkalovic.
