A world controlled by us

There's an interesting discussion going on who owns and profits from the wisdom of the crowd. Jeff Jarvis has a long post that touches upon most of the interesting themes, a must read...

"This is no longer a centralized world, a world controlled by those institutions. This is a decentralized world, a world controlled by us. And if you try to take control away from us, you will lose. It used to be that you could take control away from us and we had nowhere to go. But in this post-scarcity world, we can always go somewhere else for content or information or service. There’s always another news story, always another email service, always another search engine. Thus my first law, once again: Give us control and we will use it. Don’t and you will lose us."
