My conversation over B&B breakfast with a computer science college teacher spilled over into dialog with colleagues at Ashridge Business School (UK) today.
How does an open-source, sharing-based environment create interdependence and community?
How do the “walls” built in organizations (including those between people) to protect proprietary information impact collaborative performance?
How will we find the effective mix of open-source and proprietary to support a sustainable commercial and social future?
What do you think?
