Because we live in a digital world that is decentralized, asynchronous and largely anonymous, learning how trust works, how we can assess it and what we should expect when it is implemented in relatively new conditions is key to our online lives.

The article is great but don't be mistaken, there is still A LOT to do. 
When you think of companies that foster and encourage employee collaboration, a big pharmaceutical company probably doesn’t top your list. But thanks to enthusiastic employees and visionary leadership, Sanofi, one of the top five pharmaceutical companies in the world, is leading the charge in a new wave of collaboration. I sat [...]
