Skip to main content Can software be developed the wikipedia way?

I am attending an introductory talk to the Wikipedia project.
Wikipedia is an interesting social experiment. It proves
that even in a anarchist system, it is possible to create something
of substantial value.

I wonder if the same thing is possible with software. Is is possible to
develop software using an anarchist approach ? Can a project open up cvs commit
access to anyone on the Internet and expect a coherent piece of software to evolve over time?

I wonder.
