Jeremiah Owyang on Sustainability and the Collaborative Economy
The collaborative economy is a new buzzword about trends that are changing the way people interact with each other and do business, and it is claimed that it is a more sustainable model than the traditional one. Here to talk about this with me is Jeremiah Owyang, the Chief Catalyst and Founder of Crowd Companies, which focuses on how large companies tap the collaborative economy. He writes on how Web technologies—such as social media and interactive marketing—impact upon the relevance of corporations to customers. His blog, Web Strategist, attracts huge attention and Jeremiah is frequently quoted in journals such as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and USA Today.
