Complexity, self organizing, and social systems - article
This is an article posted on the Learning Change blog titled "Self-organization in Communicating Groups – the emergence of coordination, shared references and collective intelligence".

From the conclusion of the paper: "This paper has reviewed the mechanism of self-organization, conceived as the spontaneous coordination of actions performed by different agents. Such coordination helps to make the actions more synergetic, while reducing the friction between them. The result is that coordinated actions achieve their intended goals more easily and more effectively. In particular, coordination may result in an apparently unreachable goal or unsolvable problem getting within reach, as sources of obstruction vanish and missing elements are fitted in."

Creating Collaboration takes more than technology
Article in Business Week by Evan Rosen is worth reading.  I've suggested for years that businesses should provide these collaboration tools to their employees to use in their volunteer work, where their passion to do good is hampered by the lack of time to do good work. Many may learn to use these tools through their social work and bring the experience back to their paid work.
