Retro validation

Dated but still valid.

In Chapter 10, Technology - Rising Tide Does Not Lift All Boats Equally, of the book "E-commerce: Formulation of Strategy", Robert T. Plant (2000) was spot on when he predicted, thus:
Future Wave 3: Power comes through consortium relationships and the collective knowledge [they] bring. To extend the technology vision of the corporation, two forms of consortium can be exploited: open-industry-based and closed-proprietary consortia; utilized intelligently this assists in the prevention of technology isolation.
Shades of Wikinomics (2006).
