Tech: The internet has flattened the world

Thomas Friedman, a New York Times columnist, has collected his thoughts on the changes wrought by the internet, and in particular the power of global collaboration to come up with innovations and product improvement. The book has quite a catchy title: The World Is Flat: A Brief History Of The Twenty-First Century.

This article in Business Week Online gives a set of illustrations of this phenomenon. It's very interesting - instructive - for its anecdotes, although you have to put up with one of the most jarring web sites I've seen in some time.
