Clay Shirky on collaboration

Yup, I am a big Clay Shirky fan.  The Read Write Web blog has a new post, “Clay Shirky Says Good Collaboration is Structured Fighting.”

Companies and projects focusing on large-scale collaboration might want to start thinking about collaboration in a new way. Clay Shirky, author of  Here Comes Everybody closed out the second day of LinuxCon North America 2011 with a contrarian look at collaboration. While many treat collaboration as a “love fest” or harmonious interaction, Shirky put forward the idea that productive methods of fighting are the most successful, particularly in open source.
