In Clay Shirky's The Internet Runs on Love presentation he talks about the impact of new coordinating tools.
"With love alone you can get a birthday party together, add coordinating tools and you can write an operating system. In the past we would do little things for love, but big things, big things required money. Now we can do big things for love."
However, it's not just new coordinating tools, tools for creativity are becoming cheaper and more powerful. And so a bunch of people can get together and create something quite impressive... just for the love of it.
On May 3, 2009 the movie The Hunt for Gollum was released. It was created by volunteers and had a budget of £3,000.
