[ba-unrev-talk] Alternative viewpoint on "Tragedy of the Commons"

Sounds pretty right to me.    (02)

The sad thing is that the Internet is being transformed from a commons 
to corporate controlled empires. It's easy to visualise humanity as a 
herd of sheep contentedly cropping on weeds, but  I think it's more 
because there's a lack of true direction and money can create that 
illusion.    (03)

I'm firm in my belief that collaboration is the next big thing in 
humanity's evolution. Collaborative acitivity is more than just the 
tools. It's a way of thinking where people are aware of the kinds of 
tasks that are better done by groups than by single people.    (04)

The way I visualise this to myself is to imagine if I was back in the 
1600's trying to comprehend "scientific thinking". The process of 
logical thought is just one of many ways of thinking about things and 
the only reason we bother with this specific pattern is because it 
generates results.    (05)
