Review of Benkler's work in occasion of the publication of "La Riqueza de las reded" by Mayo Fuster Morell English - Castellano -  Catala http://blogs.cccb.org/lab/en/article_la-riquesa-de-les-xarxes/

Index of "La riqueza de las redes" (Spanish version of The wealth of networks), and introduction by Floren Cabello and Andoni Alonso, and foreword by Mayo Fuster Morell (Castellano) http://www.icariaeditorial.com/pdf_libros/La%20riqueza%20de%20las%20redes.pdf

Yochai Benkler is a professor at the Faculty of Law and co-director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University. He is the author of the book - recently published by Icaria in Spanish - "The Wealth of Networks", benchmark in Internet and society studies. His work examines the ways in which information technologies, allowing extensive forms of collaboration, can have transformative consequences for the economy and society

The Benkler's research is developed in three areas connected. On the one hand, "peer production based on the common good", such as emerged in collaborative initiatives like free software and Wikipedia, has been framed by Benkler as an emerging new model of production that can aspire to become a reference in information production. On the other hand, Benkler introduced the concept of networked public space, and is analyzing to what extent is the new public sphere transforming public policy and political mobilization. Finally, Benkler is an expert on Internet policy and architectures of new technologies. Through all these lines of work, Benkler explores the hypothesis of the emergence of a third organizational model, the commons, which would break the pairing state - market, and would favor greater centrality and empowerment of civil society as an agent.

>From these key readings, Benkler will provide his vision about the change of time in Spain.
