Ecojoy and IT

Information Technology - including the Internet - is fostering and encouraging much change in the world. Over on I explain the connection. But most people who themselves work in IT don't realize that in addition to creating and maintaining payroll systems, networks and web sites, the technology they enable fosters and encourages the transition from hierarchical to heterarchical organization, and the transition from dominator to partnership thinking.

So organizations in general, but IT in particular would do well to think about the structure of their organization, the forms of communications, and the motivations for success.
