Thinking Beyond Social Software, according to Don Tapscott
"The old notion you have to attract, develop, and retain the best and brightest inside your corporate boundaries is becoming null. With costs of collaboration falling precipitously, companies can increasingly source ideas, innovations, and uniquely qualified minds from a vast global pool of talent.

The end result is that the corporation may be going through the biggest change in its short history. Now this is beginning to affect education, government and even the nature of the democratic process."

Sounds more like outsourcing doesn't it? But then again, that could be a tricky oversimplification.
