collective intelligence bibliography

Santa Fe Institute

Collective Cognition Workshop Bibliography (fledgling)

copied from here, to avoid risk of missing link in future.

Caveat: Don't see your papers here? Key reviews, classic papers, and new results missing?
Fine. What follows below is the beginning of a cooperative project to develop a bibliography for collective cognition.
Please send those essential missing books, reviews, papers, and web site URLs to Cosma Shalizi promptly and they will be added. Thanks!
