    On the same topic: an awesome book on WordPress.com and their unique work culture (very decentralized), by a guy who used to work at Microsoft and worked at WordPress for a couple years: A Year Without Pants: WordPress.com and the Future of Work

    Cool they’re saying businesses have become metaphysical. Capitalism, commercial real estate, and even nations are becoming irrelevant. Not in my wildest dreams could I’ve come up with that. I just can’t shake the paradigm that says businesses make, repair, or facilitate the making of things.

    Contrast this with that Slaves of the Internet opinion piece you linked from the Times.

    I agree that companies will become more distributed and decentralized as IT improves, but just because more Millennials will be working does not mean a ‘socal employee profile’ will make a business more successful. Making connections and knowing the right people is important, but that’s always been critical – especially in the top echelons. A virtual detached connection like that provided by a social network is ultimately nothing more than a fancy Rolodex; whether virtual or in the flesh, people will mostly connect enough to build trust with those they collaborate with closely, either by doing business or having fun together. There will never be a way to fully systematize human relations and businesses who try to do so will either end up alienating their employees or supporting a number of tools that are lightly used.

    Also, Barry, I know you’re not a starving artist, but I hope you’re getting paid for this post. Don’t advertise for free!
