"The secret of change is to focus all your
energy, not on fighting for the old, but on building the new." – Socrates

Control is the
and participation are the “new”.

The old system
was closed. Gatekeepers determined the
rules of the game, what was created, and how it was distributed.
The new system
is open. Consumers and creators
determine the rules, what is created, and how it’s consumed.

The old way was
exclusive. A limited number of people were
able to participate.
The new way is
inclusive. There are few barriers to
entry. Almost anyone who wants to dive
in can!

What does the
new system mean to you?  

How can you use
it to build better products or provide better services?

What’s next?
