  • Collaboration through Web 2.0

    Collaboration is a very human characteristic. Many groups have a natural preference for defining themselves by working together peer-to-peer, rather than acting solely on commands from a higher level in a hierarchy. It is hardly surprising that the tendency should be reflected in the commercial (or public good) enterprise, when a collaborative structure is feasible.
    In collaboration, it can be argued, the talents of each member of the group are more easily released to complement one another for the common good, rather than suppressed by their being treated as interchangeable drones in the hive, limited by their job description.

  • Breaking down Linux

    Linux development is more like a social network built on trusted relationships and less like a democratic community of individuals dedicated to a single development process, according to Linux creator Linus Torvalds.
    "I have a policy that he who does the code gets to decide," said Torvalds, the Linux project coordinator who has written approximately 2% of the Linux code since creating the operating system in 1990.
