I posted on this topic. I'm planning on doing some more later on. I think the Attention Wars will be one of the defining events of this year and probably for the next few years.

Umair,

Did you see the Wired article about how Lego invited "citizen designers" to develop its latest Mindstorm robots? Definitely seems like they're starting to understand the importance of peer production, the rising of the edge etc. I blogged it earlier today.
