More collaboration

James D makes the point that collaboration happens within organisations & that people will use any tools that come to hand. James goes on to say: This cycle by the way is taking place at an enterprise level, but also at the level of individual workgroups, teams and projects.

The idea behind the notion of emergence is simple: Individual agents, self motivated and operating according to simple rules, can suddenly produce patterns. With no central plan, and no ant in charge (the queen never orders anyone to do anything), the ants bump into each other randomly. You have to code. How about Anarchy 2.0?
