Github for books

a startup idea shared by AJ Anovari on 09/07/2018

I want to create a platform where you can crowdsource books using a mechanism similar to Github.
Let's say I have an idea about a book and write one chapter and publish it. Then other people can come and make their own branch, add to it, and I can merge the changes if I like it. The idea being that collectively people can create very interesting (and unpredictable) stories.
All stories will be by default published with the MIT license aka no-one can exclusively claim copyright including the person who came up with the idea. Maybe down the road if people want to monetize the the book a formula (say based on the percentage of words written by each contributor) can be used to determine individual royalties.
