Ray Ozzie and Power to the Edge

Ray says:

Power to the Edge: A new book by Dave Alberts and Richard Hayes - open sourced in its entirety by CCRP.

This book is truly a must-read for anyone interested in decentralization and the social and organizational relevance of shifting power to the edge, whether in a commercial or a defense context. As you read about the technology enablers of the edge, it'll become clear why products such as Groove - as COTS enablers of the fully-networked collaborative environment - have such immediate relevance to the defense community.

Note to self, and world: Read this thing. Yes, all 303 pages. It looks really interesting, and the DoD is funding most of the fundamental research in America right now.
