Qualities of open collaboration

For the last couple of months I have been defining an open collaboration projects as

1) non-hierarchical (vs hierarchical)

2) participatory (vs witnessing)

3) emergent (vs planned)

4) open (vs closed)

5) non-owned (vs owned)

These qualities are exemplified in projects like Burning Man, Wikipedia, open source software, and transition towns.
