1. There was a very loose interchange of vocabulary between what one might call “Crowdsourcing” vs. actual collaboration. I think Jeff mixed the two instances up a lot in his talk. His example of P&G turning to electrical engineers to problem solve vs. chemical and bio engineers was one such mix up.
2. The interchange of IP vs. CC – they are not the same and are more often than not getting mixed up in the description of open source licenses.
This books seems to have come out at the tail end of similar conversations by Steven Johnson, Howard Rheingold, Clay Shirky, Duncan Watts so on. I wonder if some of these would benefit being online chapters that are edited and published quickly and thus stay relevant – i guess more in the format of papers over books.]]>
