We – Juha Suoranta & I – have just published an open access book entitled Wikiworld – Political Economy and the Promise of Participatory Media. Why today? Because it is Minna Canth day!

Please feel free to download and link the book from

Political Economy and the Promise of Participatory Media

In the digital world of learning there is a progressive transformation from the institutionalized and individualized forms of learning to open learning and collaboration. The book provides a critical view on the use of new technologies and learning practices in furthering socially just futures, while at the same time paying critical attention to the constants, or “unmoved movers” of the information society development; the West and Capitalism. The essential issue in the Wikiworld is one of freedom – levels and kinds of freedom. Our message is clear: we write for the radical openness of education for all.

  1. Luin vasta Illich-painotteisen ensimmäisen luvun, mutta eiköhän loppukin ole merkittävää ja mielenkiintoista, onnittelen. Ja onnittelen siitäkin, että julkaisu tapahtui ilmaiseksi verkossa.
