Clay Shirky: Institutions vs. Collaboration

I saw Clay Shirky speak at the Health2.0 conference in San Francisco a month or so ago. The guy amazes me... This video is 20 minutes worth your time!

His talk covers institutions vs. collaboration...

Institutions: requires management, exclusion (you can't hire everyone), you create a professional class

Collaboration: you bring the problem to the people, instead of bringing the people to the problem, you build groups, you coordinate group efforts
