Some lessons from WMF - how about a layered model of governance?
I am in agreement with you - interestingly, in my Master's OD program, the topic I'm working on is about Creativity through Controversy.
This thread is an excellent example about how we can be creative and controversial at the same time! I really like the examples you give, to prove your point, and at the same time, it provides further information to ponder.
Yes, one of the great challenges in the Wiki environment is that it is SO dynamic as compared to other technologies. But as you rightly point out, the rest of the world is moving too - maybe not at the same pace - but moving in how it focuses on particular challenges.
I've sent a shot across the bow about 2015....and you've responded in a way that is neither defensive nor offensive ~ it is merely thought-provoking, and focused on your current goal.
Thanks Randy -
It's a wiki - so open candid reflection and participation is what we're about. That said sometime, in that passion of an edit war, folk can become defensive and evey quite offensive. That said - as long as the community is committed to talking - we can go a long way!
