Here’s a video. Why do people do amazing stuff for free? Write tremendously useful software (Linux, Apache), create forums for discussion, inform, enlighten and blow the whistle on misdeeds? Without hope (at least in my case) of monetary reward?
Because they want to be useful in their own eyes, maybe?
I’ve said it many times before in my critiques of the top down model of UK management. Free, self directed people do better work than drones. Interesting point of view, n’est-ce pas? Don’t employ, engage…..
Can’t see it catching on….. unfortunately. Too many ‘leaders’ in the way.
