Lazy Virtues: Teaching Writing in the Age of Wikipedia by Robert E. Cummings
English | Mar. 27, 2009 | ISBN: 0826516165 | 209 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Winner of the MLA's Mina P. Shaugnessy Prize for an outstanding work in the fields of language, culture, literacy, or literature with strong application to the teaching of English.

Rather than praising or condemning that site for its role as an encyclopedia, Cummings instead sees it as a site for online collaboration between writers and a way to garner audience for student writing.
