Collective Wisdom brings together knowledge from interviews and group conversations with 166 practitioners, thought leaders and scholars, 222 readings, and 251 media projects.

Collective Wisdom lives online as an interactive report, at a Massachusetts Institute of Technology  (MIT) new online platform, PubPub, allowing readers to dive into the research findings and contribute their knowledge to dynamic community discussions. The Open Doc Lab’s conversation  around co-creation is just beginning, with further responses to Collective Wisdom to be published on Immerse, an online publication about emerging nonfiction storytelling.
