How to make your Company and Products thrive in an Age of Cooperation

As a reader who regularly follows the blog knows, in my latest piece I introduced some new concepts about the theory of niches and, in particular, I focused on showing how communities finally won a productive and inspirative role into the new cooperative product cycle that is gradually establishing.
