Democratic Process on Identity- Building at AboutUs.org
Consensus on GoThresholds and DoneTimer
Ted: Fridemar, the most important reason for Stage 1, in my opinion, is to allow the community to set the GoThresholds and DoneTimer for Stage 2, rather than having it imposed upon them by me or you or anyone else.
Fridemar: Ted, this is a great feature within the community of AboutUs, I have never seen at any other place. Participation in creating the strategical Meta-Parameters of the community, that define the process of decision making itself.
Identity by Expectation-Setting in the Projects:WhoWeAre
Ted: I'm also really interested in the Projects:WhoWeAre task about expectation-setting. How do we convey that this will likely take months, that people are welcome to come and go as time and interest come and go, and that it will all be okay, that we will be able to see progress and thus not become discouraged? Are you interested in working on that question?
Fridemar: Creating Identity to me is (philosophically speaking) a never ending game. There are two forces in the play to be reconciled:
- embracing as much as possible and
- selecting appropriately (as self-organizing process ) to reduce frictions, (caused by incompatible subsystems), thus caring for healthy growth.
As each engaged member brings in their own energies, this is an evolutionary process.
Practically speaking, we need an identity to be recognizable and attractive for marketing AboutUs and
its engaged members. My task will be to create as much compatibility as possible.
As you see, I've started to work on this question :-) fridemar 12:57, 16 August 2007 (PDT)
Ted: Great! TedErnst
