Me again. This time I wanted to pick up on a statement in one of your comments. You say I can’t help but wonder how keeping knowledge to myself (not sharing with the collective) will maintain a potential card in my hand. but our underlying contention is that withholding knowledge won’t make you more valuable (because you still have a card to play). Rather, it potentially makes you less valuable because you are not seen as part of the potential solution to a challenge. The assumption is that no one person offers the answer, but rather, that the contribution of many is required to push forward toward a solution. If you withhold knowledge, someone else will come along and contribute in your place.
