Now the tide is turning again. As Marina Gorbis portrays, based on extensive research into current trends, the confluence of new technologies has now offered so many capabilities to individuals that we are inventing radical new types of organizations and services. She calls this “socialstructing”—banding together to offer alternative solutions all across life, from new types of schools and professional tutoring, to citizen-created money, to drug development and testing, criminal investigation, and small-scale manufacturing.

Offering a wealth of specific examples, such as that of BioCurious, a members run and free to use biotech lab and the remarkable Khan Academy, a free online teaching service, she shows how innovative individuals are taking over so many of the jobs done by big businesses and organizations, and how we can all take advantage of these marvelous new opportunities.
