I really couldn’t think of the best way to start this reflection post, but I know that as I’ve written those first few words, I actually started it. But let’s not dwell on how I shall begin this blog entry. Let me share some insights and “realizations” that I surprisingly picked up from the 9th chapter of Wikinomics.
