“Andamooka is a collection of support/development communities for Open Content/GFDL books.

“Andamooka’s public forum helps bring people with common interests — after all, they’re all reading the same book! — together to assist each other in studying, analyzing, or putting into practice the content of the book.

“The Open Content and GNU Free Documentation Licenses have the potential to dramatically change the way a book is used and received by its readers. At Andamooka we want to get active readers together to discuss and modify the work openly — in a public forum — so that issues of fact, clarity, and content can be addressed and correct, useful additions can be made to the main work. Because the licenses are relatively unrestrictive, the modified work can then be redistributed so that each reader can benefit from the work of the entire commmunity. In this model, ‘open’ books become dynamic and can be constantly current. A nice discussion of this topic can be found at in Open Source Content Development at opencontent.org”
