Benkler on Open Source
By Jimgris-Oracle on Apr 20, 2008
Nice TED talk from Yochai Benkler on Open Source economics and the disruptive nature of community development. To me, this is all about empowered individuals acting in their own interests (financial, altruistic, whatever), so that the collective also benefits. Also see Coase's Penguin, or Linux and the Nature of the Firm and The Wealth of Networks.
