The Carr-Benkler Wager
The Carr-Benkler Wager is a wager between Wikipedia's best troll Nicholas Carr and Yochai Benkler about the pricing of collective production of content on Web sites. The wager runs from 2006-07-19 until approximately 2011-07-19. Carr argues that collective content production will be priced. The Carr-Benkler wager is the epitome of the e-war between the pro-"Web 2.0" and the anti-"Web 2.0" (aka "'Web 2.0' sucks") people.
Examples of how "Web 2.0" is about to get roasted
On TOW, the first sign of marketization of content production is its bounty board, where people are allowed to exchange money and Wikipedia edits. The next step is every Wikipedia troll's and "vandal"'s dream: Wikipedia with contextual advertising and less bureaucratic fucking, or dissolution of Wikimedia.
