[A link visited] Don Tapscott on Web 2.0 Expo

Don Tapscott shows us some interesting trends we are seeing in the (western) world at the moment in his talk on Web 2.0 Expo in Berlin. He made me happy by confirming that ideas Flempo is based on are (still) recognized as our future:

“75 years ago Nobel Prize winner Ronald Coase: ‘Why does this vertical economy exist, why do we have companies? (…) Why isn’t everybody an independent contractor?’ (…) The cost of collaboration in an open market is greater than the cost of doing things inside the boundaries of the corporation.”

“[But now] the collaboration cost is dropping so much in an open market, that peers can come together and not just network socially, they can produce socially. ”
