In some ways this is a symbiosis rather than a competive model.
Both work well in biology.
I suspect in simpler times when economies were locally based symbiotic
cooperation was much more prevalent than the competive model which
globalisation favours. With the net providing better communication and
making vertical integration more attractive I guess we will see further
cooperation vertically in markets.
Are there other industries, other than software, where we can see a central
component kept out of the market system?
