There are examples of mass collaboration -- where peers come together to create value.

Tapscott continues to say, "Today, thanks to the New Web, encyclopedias, jetliners, operating systems, mutual funds, and much else are being created by teams numbering in the thousands or even millions. While some leaders fear the heaving growth of these massive communities, evidence is strong that firms can harness collective capability and genius to spur innovation, growth, and success."
