Open Issues in the Community Development Methodology

1. Feedback

Feedback mechanisms are used to control the dynamic behavior of a system, to stimulate or adjust its behavior in some way. In an emerging social system feedback is how the self-organizing process can be accelerated or defeated, so it is a very important for us to figure out ways that we can positively reinforce the community. This is the most unknown thing in this whole process. We will be working it out as we go.

Would these things actually be a form of feedback?

2. Building membership

It seems like a good idea to not only expand the membership of these communities, but how much actual organization of the membership is needed is a question.
