excellent article by Ted, i think! :) he is quite passionate about discovering the truth and understanding what things mean. to my mind, if i want to not ramble but put it precisely, the conclusion is - if cooperation is the skin, collaboration is the heart and the mind. coordination is the enablement of either of the two! :)

Unfortunately, I could not access the entire article. However, I really like the first comment! I also think that cooperation is a form of faciliation (e.g. providing people access to information/knowledge, etc.) while collaboration entails really working together to achieve a common goal.
