Crowd Accelerated Innovation : How web video powers global innovation

This video with Chris Anderson talks about the rise of web video and how it is driving a worldwide phenomenon he refers to as Crowd Accelerated Innovation — a self-fueling cycle of learning that could be as significant as the invention of print. But to tap into its power, organizations will need to embrace radical openness.

He refers to the obvious stuff about how groups collaborate online, but the point being video is very much under rated – he says:-

But what’s key here is, the reason these groups have been able to connect is because their work output is of the type that can be easily shared digitally — a picture, a music file, software. And that’s why what I’m excited about, or what I think is under-reported, is the significance of the rise of online video. This is the technology that’s going to allow the rest of the world’s talents to be shared digitally, thereby launching a whole new cycle of crowd-accelerated innovation.
