Meta-Collaboration or Just Plain Old Collage?

This is undoubtedly a fantastic video that highlights the interconnection yet independence of individual creative efforts on social media sites such as YouTube.

However I don’t think it is right to call it any form of collaboration – unless there were multiple people putting this track together (as opposed to simply contributing their individual elements). I call the individualistic input of contribution that aggregate to form a whole, ‘cooperation’. Collaboration requires multiple participants add/edit/deleting the same domain. Or at least, that’s what I came to in my phd :-). What do you think?In any case, this video rocks and thanks Rob Stewart for bringing it to my attention!
