Douglas Rushkoff answering this year&#8217-s Edge question:

I thought it would allow us to build a new world through which we could model new behaviors, values, and relationships. &#8230- For now, at least, it&#8217-s turned out to be different. &#8230- The open source ethos has been reinterpreted through the lens of corporatism as &#8220-crowd sourcing&#8221- – meaning just another way to get people to do work for no compensation.
