Fascinating talk here by the wonderful Don Trapscott on the open world and the principles that underpin it. He outlines four key principles that support open-ness in society.
- Collaboration – the boundaries are coming down within organisations to enable organisations to collaborate, not only with those inside the institute but also with those from outside as well
- Transparency – the web has made information free, and with it has fundamentally changed the transparency of our institutions
- Sharing – there was a great study published last year that showed the value in sharing your intellectual property with others
- Empowerment – the distribution of knowledge and information is not now limited to those at the top of institutions or society, it’s now available to the majority
It’s a fascinating talk. Have a look and let me know your thoughts in the comments.
