We live in a curious time, a time when the nature of relationships and communities is increasingly morphing into something never seen before. Throughout human history, people defined themselves fundamentally with respect to place and rooted community. But, now we live in a world of purposes, not a world of places, a world of economic relationships, not community relationships. Increasingly, we now live in markets, organizations and networks. Economic and technological values, therefore, replace traditional values and that's what this book is all about.
