People have to govern their own online communities. There isn't really an alternative to this other than forms of arbitrary tyranny. So the problem then becomes one of how to create small, maintainable systems where there are sufficient tools to enable self-governance.

Since there is increasingly little difference between online and offline this is a general societal project.

#Ogoni9

The #openweb was ripped apart by meany forces.

#encryptionists pushing securaty theater broke UI and trust based relationships

#geekproblem narrowed this into a irrelevant subculture.

#fashernistas inbraced the bad in both sides for self intrest, greed and fame.

#dotcons privatised data and metadata to the service of profit and social controle. All the above groups played there role in this.

The #openweb is a hollow shell for most people
