Amen David. It's certainly about more than simply who gets to create and distribute content.

|Publishing is centrally controlled||Anyone can publish what they want|
|Context is stripped from information||Context is retained in the form of stories|
|People think quietly alone||People think out loud together|
|People tend to write in the third person, in a professional voice||People write in the first person in their own voice|
|People especially those in authority are closed to new ideas and new ways of working||Everyone is open to new ideas|
