Simple problem I think applies to connectivism.
The power of a network resides in the product of interactions between “nodes”, which is a real and measurable thing. Power in life is based partly on how well you play with others, but recognition, and goodies are awarded on products directly tagged to you or your small team.
So if I go to so-and-sos blog, encounter an idea triggering comment and am inspired with a fabulous insight do I: a) be loyal to the spirit of the network to increase the knowledge base and respond right there at their blog? OR b) do I run back to my blog and publish for the greater glory of myself?
If I hold to the value of the net to continue producing great ideas then the answer is “a”. Reality for most people though is recognition and rewards go to unambiguous originators. Who here is rewarded for contributing to the greater good?
