Today I found a piece on TED.com about the history and make-up of Collaboration.
Howard Rheingold talks about the coming world of collaboration, participatory media and collective action – and how Wikipedia is really an outgrowth of our natural human instinct to work as a group. Howard is a writer, artist and designer, theorist and community builder. He is one of the driving minds behind our net-enabled, open, collaborative life.
What forms of suffering could be alleviated? What forms of wealth could be created if we just knew a little more about cooperation?
