Very much enjoyed Jeff Jarvis’ recent book “What Would Google Do?” on the new, next economy. There, the old strategy of hoarding information for competitive gain, is supplanted by internet-based demand for openness, spontaneity and honesty among a long tail of interconnected, self-organizing individuals and small communities. Jarvis traverses all facets of the economic landscape and sees how this new ethos is on the rise. Indeed, a new social-political-economic era seems to be emerging.
I was inspired to focus on the spontaneous, entrepreneurial act of opening up and sharing my personal thoughts and dig deeper into the issues I care about. Thanks Professor Jarvis!
