Flickr don’t employ librarians to categorise photos – instead they are tagged by users which means there is no need to employ a “professional class” to do the job. Could this be, by any chance, a sign that we have reached the beginning of the end of getting things done where the default choice is an organisation built from “pre-arranged structures with explicit goals”?

Clay Shirky talks about how the internet creates a platform for organising differently, how you can build cooperation into the infrastructure of your enterprise and how coordination replaces planning.
