Community Innovation

Communities can Amplify Innovation when groups get turned on by what they can do online, they go beyond problem-solving and start inventing together.

"Groups of people can use online social networks to think together in new ways. When the affinity or common goal shared by the group is strong enough, mastery of group communication media leads people to invent things together in new ways." (H. Rheingold) Resources:
