Today, encyclopedias, jetliners, operating systems, mutual funds, and many other items are being created by teams numbering in the thousands or even millions. While some leaders fear the hea...more
I first heard about Don Tapscott on CBC's Spark, where Nora Young interviewed him about the Net Generation and "digital natives." They also have an interview about MacroWikinomics, the sequel to Wikinomics, which I will be reading soon.

Dunno why this bugged me so much, since I'm not typically a spelling or grammar Nazi, but, folks, it is Encyclopædi...more
The poor writing comes in the form of many sweeping generalisations that will change the world and repeat themselves often and the horribly cooked-up terminlogy ("Ideagoras"?).

Totally my fault for procrastinating and not picking this up until ... how ever many years after it was written. But in this day and age, a book concerning technology and how times are changing needs to be read in a few days after publishing before it becomes old news.
