In just the last few years, traditional collaboration in a meeting room, on a conference call, and even in a convention center has been superseded by collaborations on an astronomical scale 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 burgeoning growth of these massive online communities, Wikinomics proves this fear is folly Smart firms can harness collective capability and genius to spur innovation, growth, and success A brilliant guide to one of the most profound changes of our time, Wikinomics challenges our most deeply rooted assumptions about business and will prove indispensable to anyone who wants to understand competitiveness in the st century Based on amillion research project led by best selling author Don Tapscott, Wikinomics shows how masses of people can participate in the economy like never before They are creating TV news stories, sequencing genomes, remixing their favorite music, designing software, finding cures for disease, editing school texts, inventing new cosmetics, and even building motorcycles You ll read about Rob McEwen, the Goldcorp, Inc CEO who used open source tactics and an online competition to save his company and breathe new life into an old fashioned industry Flickr, Second Life, YouTube, and other thriving online communities that transcend social networking to pioneer a new form of collaborative production Mature companies, like Procter Gamble, that cultivate nimble, trust based relationships with external collaborators to form vibrant business ecosystems An important look into the future, Wikinomics will be your road map for doing business in the st century

    Das Buch gibt einen guten Ueberglick ber die derzeitigen Business Cases im web, auf sehr sachliche und interessante Weise Gleichzeitig kann man lernen, dass sich grosse Firmen als Beispiel IBM bereits in den sp ten 90 iger Jahren entschlossen haben, ihre Software und Serverentwicklung teilweise in die Linux Apache Welt auszugliedern, und so nicht nur einen grossen Beitrag an diese community zu machen, aber auch sehr mit dieser neuen Ausrichtung zu profitieren.Das Buch beschreibt die verschieden M glichkeiten der Kooperation im web ohne zu vergessen, dass propriet re Systeme im traditionellen Sinne nicht berholt sind, aber nicht mehr f r alle Unternehmensgebiete sinnvoll Wie vor 20 Jahren das Outsourcing dazu gef hrt hat, dass Unternehmensbereiche ausgegliedert wurde, f hrt auch diese Entwicklung zu einer Konzentration auf das Wesentliche und einem outsourcing von Leistungen,welche man mit Dritten teilen m chte.Das Buch ist leicht lesbar und ist m.E f r Leser angedacht, die an den wirtschaftlichen Zusammenh ngen des Mitmachwebs interessiert sind.

    Think of this book as reporting of where the world was in 2005 than analysis and direction for the future But Wikinomics is a helpful resource to have, for most people are unaware of the extent to which self organization through mass communication is being developed Some of the successes are spectacular like the Goldcorp contest to locate gold which I described in The Ultimate Competitive Advantage in 2003 and Procter Gamble s astonishing efforts to acquire technology from outside the organization which I describe in The 2,000 Percent Squared Solution.The strength of the book is that several different aspects of on line mass collaborations are developed including 1 Open collaborations to produce collective results not owned by anyone including Wikipedia and Linux.2 Accessing expert knowledge through idea markets such as Goldcorp and P G have done.3 Customers being able to participate in detailed customization past what the vendor facilitates basically a blurring of company customer boundaries.4 Knowledge transfer among the scientific community.5 Methods of opening access to partners, especially for complementary software development.6 Global production methods.7 New ways of facilitating work in combination with those outside the organization.If you are like me, you ll learn about some examples that you didn t before and find yourself feeling better informed.The book has two annoying qualities that you should be aware of First, the authors are very generous with each other in giving credit for ideas generated in the nondigital world by others Second, there is a gushiness about the potential that isn t nuanced enough to reflect the problems that need to be solved As a result, the inexperienced reader will get a sense that each opportunity is equally easy to grasp That s clearly not true In addition, the psychology of where which approaches will and won t work are mostly alluded to rather than developed Building mass collaboration around enlightened self interest is quite different from doing so built around purely altruistic purposes.I suspect the book would have worked better if the authors had written a series of books that developed each perspective further Certainly, the global contest concept for for profit enterprises is a proven area that almost anyone can do That topic deserved emphasis and explanation Instead, you get a newspaper level discussion of the topic.I have not read a better book on this subject but there may well be one I ve missed and I suspect Wikinomics will be one of the standards in on line mass collaborations.

    Ok, I ve put this book aside for the second time and chances are I ll never finish it For me, it s just stating the obvious and I m not learning anything new Besides, I m a bit annoyed with how the author has structured the book i.e not at all At least, I cannot work out a logic It s just one endless string of conversational drivel interrupted by a few capitalised headings Not worth reading.

  4. Dr. Michael Heron Dr. Michael Heron says:

    The book takes what is, at times, a comically breathlessly enthusiastic view on how the future is being changed by a culture of mass collaboration, but I don t personally feel that the shift is quite so fundamental as is being indicated On the whole, it s an entertaining read, but for the concrete examples of mass collaboration in industry rather than the central thesis of the book, which is Hold on to your hats.Some of the examples of mass collaboration cited as fundamental paradigm shifts strike me as incremental shifts at best chief amongst these, the example of GoldCorp who opened up their geological data to everyone and as a result netted a huge windfall of information that led to the identification of new, rich seams of gold in a mine that was about to be closed It s interesting, yes, but I feel nothing revolutionary The GoldCorp situation says competition than collaboration to me effectively GoldCorp ran a competition in which they said Find us some gold, win a prize None of the mechanisms that lead to mass collaboration as a genuinely new phenomenon are present in a number of the examples given.The book is sparesely sourced, but contains interviews or at least, soundbites with a number of very prominent figures in the computing industry and other areas Some of these people are pioneers in some of the emergent ideas that, in my opinion, indicate collaboration as a paradigm shift.

  5. Andrew Dalby Andrew Dalby says:

    This book was recommended by a business partner at IBM who thinks big things of the new open source collaborative world So I was expecting a lot, but I remain unconvinced.Some of the examples are great such as the gold mining and the role of IBM in open source development but some cases are less clear cut The reverse engineering of Japanese motorcycles by the newly rising Chinese industry perhaps should give us a warning about how the knowledge economy is ultimately at the mercy of the manufacturing economy that for now are collaborators Collaboration is fine so long as altruism flourishes and everyone benefits but eventually someone wants then their fare share of the pie.The test will be to see how many of the businesses described in the book outlive the current economic downturn Those that do will have proved the point but I do not think it is a one fit solution for all.

    The internet has given a whole generation the ability to influence their environment Web2 allows us all to share information and entertainment It is the astute firm that can harness this tremendous power to advance its business plan A great book but like so many in the genre it is too long Surely it is better to reflect on the wisdom than to rush on to get to the end.

  7. Afonso Marques Afonso Marques says:

    The first chapters are ok, but later you will find out that it s like those conversations that just don t progress, going over and over the same aspect.

  8. Antonio H Antonio H says:

    Este libro debi ser una bomba cuando empez el Internet colaborativo, pero la potencialidad de Internet ha crecido tanto desde su publicaci n, las alternativas son tan enormes y hay tanto avanzado desde su publicaci n, que el libro ha quedado anticuado en muy poco tiempo

    Quick catch up for those who haven t got a clue and for those who only operate on the fringes of all things web Written in plain and simple English and no hectic jargon A brilliant read, and a must if you want to make money in the 21st century

  10. Kyle Kyle says:

    As someone who was already fairly knowledgeable about social media and mass collaboration before reading this book, I found it s analysis of the situation to be frustratingly topical and shallow.As a general introduction to Web2.0 for the uninitiated, I m sure this book would be a great introduction without ever getting too technical or spending too much time in one area So maybe I just wasn t the right audience for this book.To me, this book feels like something written by someone who really understands the topic through and through, sits down, and starts writing off the top of their head, and that s it No bold new insights or mind blowing connections others have over looked, it is just a topical survey of some of the big players that were on the scene at the time this book was written.

  11. Christian Nugue Christian Nugue says:

    A revolution usually pitches one segment of the population against another one But the new scenario presented here convincingly sells the idea of a transparent and collaborative model relying on the knowledge and talent of the whole population We are all given an opportunity to shape a new world What we have here is a pretty accurate and enticing account of how the technological trend is translating into a new economic model Share your thoughts, your questions and even your most sensitive corporate data and you will be rewarded.The book explains in simple terms how crowdsourcing creates new ideas, new products and new wealth Its enthusiasm is sometimes contagious.But when you look under the hood, you might detect some serious flaws Who benefits most from this revolution The capitalistic companies that see their market value soar Collaboration often means insecurity and meager earnings for the collaborators The author omits to mention that crowdsourcing is a double edged sword.

  12. Lo Gran Lo Gran says:

    This is a great essay It is particularly enlightening for those who come from the paper analogical era because it explains a world with different rules, somewhat of science fiction This is why it is also disturbing, because this science fiction is not so, on the contrary it is reality Though since the book was published things kept evolving and some new patterns should be taken into account, this essay is a must to anybody who wants to understand what business is about in the digital era.

  13. M. Ahmed M. Ahmed says:

    I found this book interesting to read as it showed the power of collaboration and open source software Yes, some may argue that there is nothing new within this book but the underlying lessons that I took from this book were 1 To explore further how collaborative technologies could be optimised and used effectively.2 Continue to evaluate and keep an overview of the open source movement and software development, in general.

    Interesting but not necessary to explain twice or three times the same idea with different examples that fill pages with nothing new to think about
