The Rise of Social Power

Just got to reading this killer piece of writing by David Kirkpatrick. Thought this quote captured the piece well:

The institutions of modern developed societies, whether governments or companies, are not prepared for this new social power. People are changing faster than companies. “I don’t think it’s crazy to ask if your CEO is the next Mubarak,” says Gary Hamel, one of business’ most eminent theoreticians of management. “The elites—or managers in companies—no longer control the conversation. This is how insurrections start.” Says Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce.com, Inc. : “This isn’t just about Arab spring. This is about corporate spring.”
