Executive Summary

This paper shares the vision for a new approach to content-centered collaboration. Emphasizing communication, collaborative work and community, one envisions a cloud-based platform that inverts the traditional application-content relationship by placing content rather than applications at the center, enabling users to rapidly build customized solutions around their content items. The author believes the future of collaboration will focus on building and sustaining communities around content, tasks and ideas, and they see hosted entities known as content spaces as a means to supporting ecosystems of users and developers around that content. To make this case the author reviews the dominant trends in computing that motivate the exploration of new approaches for content-centered collaboration.
