Malone: I have a slogan for that. We need to change our thinking from “command and control” to “coordinate and cultivate.” Command and control won’t go away completely.

Spotted on Jonathan Schwartz’s weblog. The discussion also includes the word wirearchy which I thought was quite nice and had not seen before.
