Outstanding post Irving! I thoroughly enjoyed it. And I could not agree more; "as we transition from the industrial to the knowledge economy" is what this swell is all about (at its core), and business needs to two-step it in order to align their inner workings. Thank you for a stimulating read!

Irving, I genuinely loved your article. Like you, I am a big fan of the work that John Hagel and JSB have done in this area. If you would allow me to make one small suggestion...
As you pointed out, knowledge, especially explicit knowledge, has become a commodity. Google Search has removed most of the value of explicit knowledge. However, learning flows are the source waters of creativity and the ability to connect the dots between seemingly unrelated ideas.
Perhaps by substituting "the knowledge economy" with, as Richard Florida has suggested, "the creative economy", the essential point of your article could made even more forcefully.
You have done some great thinking and writing here. Thanks!
