Interesting article. But what form does "organizational capital" take? How do we know it when we see it? It seems to me that most organizations have the same ways of working that they have had for years if not decades.

Some of the increases in productivity could have come from increased use of outsourcing, cheaper labor in overseas markets, etc.

It seems to me that we will see the true effects of IT in the form of large amounts of deflation as these scalable technologies demonstrate their power. But there are many factors that may have served to cover up those signs of deflation -- at least so far.
