Los paralelismos entre Wikileaks y Napster

Llego a través de esta buena reseña en Techdirt, “How the Pentagon’s reaction to Wikileaks is like the RIAA’s reaction to Napster“ a este gran artículo del New Yorker, “Chasing Wikileaks“, que resalta los claros paralelismos entre las reacciones que el gobierno y las autoridades militares de los Estados Unidos están mostrando frente al caso Wikileaks y las que en su momento desplegó la Recording Ass. of America (RIAA) frente a Napster.

El Pentágono está protagonizando una importante batalla legal centrada en perseguir la actividad y a sus responsables – ya hay desde opiniones que piden al gobierno el empleo de fuerzas militares para poner a Julian Assange delante de la justicia, hasta incluso peticiones de pena de muerte para el militar implicado en una de las filtraciones, Bradley Manning – sin tener en cuenta que en caso de caer Wikileaks, muchos otros sitios estarían dispuestos a tomar su relevo de manera prácticamente inmediata. Wikileaks no es el problema, es el síntoma.

Co-creation. Elements of Open Innovation!

Who participate?

In Open Innovation Goes All the Way, Stefan Lindegaard said, “Companies miss out on the full potential of open innovation when they more or less deliberately shut down for external resources later in the process.”

This caught my attention to something which seems essential and which I had given little attention.

It is the co-creation.

“Co-creation is a form of market or business strategy that emphasizes the generation and ongoing realization of mutual firm-customer value. It views markets as forums for firms and active customers to share combine and renew each other’s resources and capabilities to create value through new forms of interaction, service and learning mechanisms. It differs from the traditional active firm – passive consumer market construct of the past.” – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Co-creation)

According to a report McKinsey Quarterly companies have three ways to win with the adoption co -creation.

– Firms can capture the value of the product or service co- created the good ideas commercializes resulting networks. Ex : Lego

– Companies can capture value by providing a complementary product or service. Ex: Red Hat

– Companies can benefit indirectly from the co- creation, for example, through a better brand or strategic position.

How to be Open to Unsolicited Ideas While Staying Responsive and Efficient – Insights from Clorox

Time – with limited resources, could we fast enough assess submissions in a timely way? Fear – that painful negotiations and custom deals with inventors would jam our legal team. This week, we’re trying a new process that tackles both.

Written by Dr. Andrew Gilicinski who leads Open Innovation Networks at Clorox, working with partners on breakthrough new products. Prior to Clorox, he worked in innovation roles at Gillette and Air Products.

For years I’ve watched open innovation evolved, impressed at the growing array of tools and capabilities. At Clorox we focused on supplier innovation relationships (Win-Balancing) for downstream “seamless” technology creation, a “Lab without Walls”. However, we’ve been slower to adopt external idea portals to engage inventors, for two reasons – time and fear.

Open Innovation Lessons from Big Pharma


by Stefan Lindegaard

//
I often catch myself thinking that big pharma companies have serious challenges on innovation – and open innovation in particular.It must be difficult getting beyond the R&D mindset of innovation when it takes 10-15 years to be able to market a product and even harder to open up to external partners given the high level of knowledge – and thus intellectual property rights – needed.

Now I’m building a strategy consulting practice at Dachis Group and advising companies on social business – wherein policies and guidelines play an important role.
