Power shifting to the connectors? Or to the ecosystem?

This is a great article; I don't agree the power is necessarily centered in the number of relationships nor on one specific role (i.e. the connector role); I do think social networks are "ecosystems" and because of that there is inherent "power" to all the roles within those ecosystems; being it the role of "knowledge", of human interconnection (connectors), of concept interconnection (curators) or of propagation (sales people).

But I do like the points the author makes of the transition of power and the lessened importance of hierarchical level versus interconnection in actually achieving objectives.

What do you think?
