Web 2.0 will change the shape of the Enterprise, and it will bring about the beginning of the billion 'one-person enterprise'. Yes, that's my controversial theory for the day.
I really think the working world is changing, not only the networked technologies we're using are advancing at a phenomenally fast pace, but the social structure surrounding it all is changing in truly amazing ways.
Here are some evidence I've observed that exemplifies this theory:
- more people are able to work as independent individuals, supported by the Web. As long as they're connected, both in terms of technology, as well as by their reputation, they will not have shortage of interesting work
- more people are leveraging the Web to form networks of collaborations, people realise that their best ideas can be improved/discussed/refined by a community of people
Are you ready for this vision of social change? are you setting yourself up to be well-connected, building up your good reputation, and tapping into the wealth of knowledge and resources presented by the community?
