Ray Ozzie on Organizations

Ray Ozzie, creator of Lotus Notes, talks about the fundamental shift in the way we work. The Internet and the development of collaborative technologies is decentralizing the enterprise.

The virtual office will shape our concept of the workplace. The new concept: a world of pervasive knowledge work, riding on the foundations of fiber laid by the ghosts of an Internet bubble past and enabled by cheap, self-service communications tools and technologies.

I'm curious how this ultimately impacts the economics of business and organizations. Will businesses start to resemble the pharma industry, where the brand is just that and innovation is acquired from others -- small groups of innovators working independently -- on the other side of the world. How will big business evolve and how will economies will handle trade & taxation issues? Some many questions, so many opportunities!

Thanks to Jeff Nolan for the main dish.
