Collective intelligence patterns

Clark Quinn

He just spoke at the celebration of Doug Engelbart’s work, and while I couldn’t attend, I was looking for blog postings and found his slide deck. social networking can facilitate work, to actually analyze and distill some underlying principles.

In the presentation I have a slide with an image for each. Really?
