Working differently

I shared this on FriendFeed and didn't intend to blog it, but it is just so good, and so relevant to freeranging that I thought I needed to give it special attention: Productivity 2.0: How the New Rules of Work Are Changing the Game. It's brilliant! (Not that I agree with every detail.)

Productivity 2.0: Independence, freedom, and collaboration. Hierarchies are being flattened out. In fact, whole new forms of organization and collaboration are being created all the time. People more and more are working independently, either within a company or as freelancers and consultants. They take on jobs as they like, and collaborate with others at will. Workers are empowered to make decisions, communication is more efficient, and people with freedom are generally happier with their jobs and more passionate about the work they produce.

As long as I'm giving shoutouts to good stuff, I'd be remiss if I didn't also share this nice piece on transparency by Jason: Work Wide Open.
