How can prosumers, crowd-/cloudsourcing and collaborative intelligence form the basis of economically sustainable business models in the short-, medium- and long run? A point of departure is a working title: Aesthetic Network Analysis. Aesthetic experience is a determining factor for so-called Web 2.0 users, also when engaging in such network activities as prosuming and crowdsourcing. A framework for Aesthetic Network Analysis must be developed in order to understand the so-called Enterprise 2.0. Such a framework must be based on the philosophy of the aesthetic experience rooted in Baumgarten's aesthetics, i.e. a hermeneutic phenomenological approach to aesthetics that includes a metaphysical idea of added value.
