Managing open innovation - tapping external talent

Is the curse of knowledge killing innovation?

I find myself on both sides of this idea when I'm listening to clients about their business/products/services/processes requirements and then trying to explain to them the business advantages of social network software.

Communications Scale with Social Networks

Most social network platforms we set-up and run are for business organizations. Organizations that want to connect people, ideas and information - mashups - so they can improve decision making and performance amongst employees, customers, suppliers, etc. But some of the ideas Mr. Young writes about, scaling self-expression, reach of distribution, and decentralizing the ecosystem apply to what we enable inside businesses.
