Plays Well With Others: Leadership in Online Collaboration

Date Added: Apr 2011
Format: Webcast

In this Webcast, the presenter finds the accomplishments of such online collaborations as Wikipedia, Apache and Firefox "Nothing less than astounding," and is both eagerly seeking and hoping to foster the next creative group Internet sensation. The presenter identifies some typical collaborative modes, including the remix (adapting someone else's project); the benevolent dictatorship (as in open-source software, where a leader decides what contributors may add to the project); and open-content publishing, in which participants work in parallel checking one another's work.
