We've been working on a broad framework that encompasses the biological, sociological, economic, computational, business-practice aspects of this phenomenon:

In echo of Howard Rheingold's commentary, here's another take on the same topic, research that specifically looks at the dynamics of peer to peer cooperation, and compares it to the market, gift economy exchange, and hierarchy based cooperation.

I suggest IBM should starts to invest and research something outside computer world such as energy, agriculture, etc. For example , invest and research on new energy sources such as solar, wind. According to this http://www.scaruffi.com/politics/oil.html
the globe can only provide oil for 27- more years !!

I think the choice to back open-source will have a large pay off for IBM. As it is really just now emerging and competing I guess we will find out in the next few years.
