Just listened to the Harvard Business School Ideacast with Don Tapscott, chairman of nGenera Insight and coauthor of “Macrowikinomics: Rebooting Business and the World”. Here’s the mp3 of the 15 minute interview.

Open Google

Read a Googler’s view on open standards, open source, and open information – important because it’s Jonathan Rosenberg, Senior Vice President of Product Management.
