Very neatly ties up fan culture with self-guided and exploratory learning, as well as provides guidelines for how companies should behave (for now anyway) with regard to their copyrights.

What's stuck with me (will blog on it at is that he asserts that the click of a 'like' function is a first stage in building a co-creative knowledge society. It's an interesting dig at those who say 'cyber-activism' isn't really activism and doesn't show any behavioural change at all.

Is perhaps a bit long winded when it comes to discussing the details of the fandoms, but these passages can be easily skimmed. It's forgivable though as he is an academic and a fan-boy himself.
