The great Kevin Kelly recently wrote a post titled “Cities are Immortal, Companies Die.” He states that
"Both are types of networks, with different destinies. There are two basic network forms: organisms or ecosystems. Companies are like organisms, while cities are like ecosystems."
The fact is that we need both, healthy organisms and a healthy ecosystem where these organisms can thrive. The industrial mindset continues to shape the social sector, and it can be challenging to transcend our organizations – we tend to over-identify with them, and to compete rather than collaborate with natural allies, this can make for an unhealthy ecosystem.
