Can I quote myself? Just this once? Please?
I was just going through some housekeeping and read a post written nearly nine months ago in which I looked at how theories about the social media world around us were falling like packs of cards, and offered decidedly tongue-in-cheek predictions of which would be next to go.
Here’s one of those predictions:
Wikinomics. Don Tapscott and Anthony D. Williams posit that if we can all just be open and honest and work together in perfect harmony the world will be a better place. A prominent pyschologist puts this to the test and discovers that, while some of us can be open and honest all the time, and all of us can be open and honest some of the time, most of us are basically untrustworthy, dishonest and unhealthily introspective. A global market recession closely follows.
Yikes! I didn’t really mean it! I was joking…!
