I wanted to share a few of my notes from our conversation as Penny Provided some really great insights concerning the social web.

I. The distinction between institutions and networks using two acronyms

1. C.S.C. for Institutions: C = Closed S = Selective C = Controling

2. O.R.S. for Networks: O = Open R = Random S = Supportive

I found this idea very enlightening and as Penny explained the concept in greater detail, it became apparent to me why so many mainstream businesses and organizational institutions such as governments and academic institutions have struggled to bridge onto the social web.
