“Just as the printing press expanded freedom and fostered new forms of personal expression that led to new social orders and institutions, the Internet is finally reweaving the fabric of society as millions and eventualy billions of people connect and collaborate around any conceivable shared interest.
For better or worse, there is a new fabric of connectivity in society that is leading to a deep change in our institutions. There is no guarantee that the changes unleashed by this social connectivity will always lead to good.
But if guided by the principles of wikinomics, organizations that harness this new force can spur social and economic innovations that will alter society for the better.”
