"Holoptism ( or more accurately " Holopticism " ? ) is opposed to panoptism. This conceptual distinction is used in the Collective Intelligence site of Jean-Francois Noubel, at http://www.thetransitioner.org/ic

Panoptism is how knowledge is distributed in hierarchical organisations. Only the top of the pyramid has a full view of what is going on in the organisation.
