The Business Impact of IP (part 1) : from "The Business Impact of IT" [sept 2011]

On May 27, 2006, Professor Andrew McAfee coined Enterprise 2.0 to evoke the impact of web 2.0 technologies on the enterprise [1].

On June 10, 2009, he posted an article titled with "Toward a pattern language for Enterprise 2.0" [2].

The article displayed two two columns tables of patterns, labelled as "Patterns where 2.0 should replace 1.0" (called here Table I) and "Patterns where 2.0 is an alternative to 1.0" (called here Table II).

On the right column are patterns relevant to 2.0 and on the left column, patterns relevant to 1.0.
For example, line 1 of Table I features "Technology appears to have been designed for the user" opposed to "Technology appears to have been designed for someone other than the user, the developer, the boss, a lawyer, etc".

Line 2 of Table II features "Technology is used to share work and conclusions with others" opposed to "Technology is used to generate or analyze information individually".
Last line of Table II features "Technology is used to create and diffuse new knowledge" opposed to "Technology is used to encode previously-generated knowledge". 

As Pr. Andrew McAfee put it, these tables are "just an initial set of patterns related to 2.0 work, which will hopefully be expanded and refined over time".

And as a matter of fact, each of these patterns invites to ask : how so ?
The expansion of these tables might be bound within the original field, "The Business Impact of IT", -the subtitle of Andrew McAfee's blog-, or it might develop outside this field.

How about looking at the field of intellectual property (IP) and searching for "The Business Impact of IP"?
