Whether you have contributed to a definition on Wikipedia or placed a phone call to help select the next American Idol contest winner, you are a member of a distributed team of people—a team that most likely numbers in the thousands or even millions.

Mass collaboration is changing how we work and process information. It will play a major role in how we compete in the global marketplace and how we will determine the world’s next rising stars.

In this interactive discussion, Julia Loughran, a former technical writer, will highlight some of the key points from Don Tapscott’s book “Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything” and provide additional examples of how this phenomenon is cropping up in all varieties of domains.
