I spent way too much time today reading up on collective action, which is probably a highly snoozy concept to anybody reading this. The idea is that one plus one is more than two, more or less, when it comes to groups of people working (more or less) together.
2009 Nobel Prize winner Elinor Ostrom got into this topic, but looked at a different aspect than I’m interested in…. Then again, if you are working from archaeological data, as I am, the whole thing is rather different from the get-go.
* BTW, this whiteboard is in the room where I wrote my comps, now a nice high-tech conference room. I still got tense being in there….
