Tony Karrer cites Aaron Fulkerson, CEO of MindTouch on collaborative networks: "Rather than focusing on socialization, one to one interactions and individual enrichment, businesses must be concerned with creating an information fabric within their organizations... Collaborative Networks are focused on groups accessing and organizing data into actionable formats that enable decision making, collaboration and reuse." Which sort of echoes something from Harold Jarche: "Once inside an organization it is necessary to focus our group work on a task or mission and that requires collaboration. Collaboration is what organizations should primarily focus on." OK, fine. Let's say that. Then: so much the worse for organizations? I mean, it begs the question, doesn't it?
