Think that might be a good #openweb slogan, “technologies job is to hold the trust in place”
#OGB Decisions only count if a wide number of people engaged in them, because in the end it’s this group that will “enforce” the consensus. So one power mad nutter (quick, take the crown off) has little power to capture.
Only trust groups actually have “power” and as they are trust groups this power will likely be used better, a good outcome.
Trust and #4opens solve this hard technology problem in a soft, swishy way. So technology job is to hold the “trust” in place.
#OMN think there are ways to stop people burning the coding project down:
Ask how their feature fits into the #4opens
* Open process should block most
* Open data sum
* Open licence is obvious, so likely won’t block much
* Open “industrial” standards should block much of the let’s do it my way mess.
This is hard work.
We need to build tech from grassroots, horizontal. Problem is, people will keep adding #mainstreaming common sense. This will course friction that will burn people out fast in tech.
Ideas for a better outcome #OMN
