The Amateur rises

Interesting article from Fast Company on the rise of the Amateurs, people who collaborate in their respective fields and how grassroots movements (what Dr. Madhukar Shukla calls the "clash of paradigms") are reshaping not just business but culture also.

JSB also talks about this new digital culture and compares it to the start of the scientific revolution and the formation of the Royal Society many centuries ago.

By the way, did you know that amatuer comes from the root that means 'to love'? So a work that amateur does is done out of love and interest? :-))
