Yi-Tan Call 247 – Peter Kollock’s Work – (Summary Version)

Last January, our friend Peter Kollock passed away unexpectedly, leaving a legacy of great work on cooperation and collective action, where he examined markets, exchange dynamics and the creation of common goods.

Marc Smith, a deep analyst of participation in online communities, was a student of Peter’s at UCLA, then co-authored Communities in Cyberspace with him.

With Marc, let’s discuss:

  • What made Peter’s approach and insights special?
  • Why does it pay to be good? How do minorities move majorities?
  • What motivates people to create common goods? When does cooperation fail?
