We-Think: Mass Innovation, Not Mass Production by Charles W. Leadbeater
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
An interesting read about new economy model that sums up to "you are what you share" conclusion. Though the author leans to the optimistic approach to sharing ideas (mostly through web), he still manages to include some criticism to his own ideas into the book, which gives it a bit more depth. Unfortunately, the author almost misses the point that sharing an idea, patent, copyright and so forth should be the decision of the author - an individual - not the faceless mass of activists surrounding the author. And this, in my opinion, is the biggest weakness of the book - it focuses only on mass power and misses the role of individual authorship, individual responsibility and an individual him/herself in this new shared economy.
