Rod Collins believes that we are in the midst of a epochal change. What does this mean to you? To jobs? To Workplaces? Tracing the path from bureaucracies, how power is being transferred to today’s peer to peer networks, Rod maps out changes to the fundamentals of social dynamics at work. Through original stories about Wikipedia, and Craigslist Rod provides insight into how an idea displaces a business without intending to.
