For the first time in history, we truly have the ability to create a world of shared knowledge.
“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” ― George Bernard Shaw
Open Source Culture is helping to lead the shift from the failing siloed structures and scarcity of today's society to the actualization of a collaborative peer-to-peer civilization.
Since 2009 the rapid growth of the IoT has created a move away from mass manufacturing and towards much more individualized production. And that will move business and organizational structure into more collaborative and open systems.
The disruptive quality of blockchain, peer-to-peer networking, and open source software is just beginning to be felt. Already new business structures called Distributed Autonomous Organizations based on blockchain-contract systems are raising millions of dollars and gaining the interest of international business and financial sectors. In manufacturing 3D printing has opened the door for a shift from a consumer-based to a maker-based society.
Let's all get ready together for the emergence of the "Global Brain."
