The Benefit of SocialNetworks - seen back in 50's ;-)

EdgarSchein with a few really valuable insights toward the web working community that is now evolving everywhere in his just finished online lecture on culture.

Probably most of us are not aware that this (web working) has happened some 60 years back. DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation) already was using DECnet back in the 50s when engineers in need of solving a problem in Maynard, USA, put their request via DECnet into the international company network. Only to get an answer from a colleague down in Australia.

And it has been also a form of distributed CoWorking way before the internet became a public commodity.


How can we accelerate the smooth transition into evolutionary change within and amongst organizations and institutions?
