QOTD: David Weinberger on scale

David Weinberger from Harvard Business: The Year of Scale

Management by control just can't work in a scaled world. In fact, it was only by removing control that the online world was able to scale.

I'm going to be blogging a lot more on the topic of scale this year. An inability to scale is where most good ideas fail, and it is something that few people give serious consideration. We do "things" because we can, but rarely think about might happen when the demand for those "things" increases exponentially.
