Not exactly arts writing, but worth noting as an approach to writing criticism ...

Further nudging outward the boundaries of online publishing, Stanford University Professor Larry Lessig will put his 1999 book "Code'' online today and invite Internet users to help him write an updated version. A noted copyright expert and proponent of free software, Prof Lessig is putting the 297-page treatise about technology, culture and regulation on the Web in the form of a "wiki", a site that can allow people to freely edit its contents. The law professor will take the contributions at and edit them into a printed version of the book.
