[...] Over the last thirty years or so it has become standard wisdom, both inside and outside business, that capitalism requires the appliance of more and more brain power in conjunction with information technology--the construction of collective intelligence in order to run complex operations, in order to foster innovation, in order to provide better service experiences, in order simply to reproduce. Much of what we regard as the domain of business corporations has run to this particular tune for some time now, from the early days of the so-called knowledge economy to the current circumstances, in which knowledge is regarded as just a factor of production like any other, there to be mined and made over into all kinds of complex collective goods.
