@Isaacl: I'm reading A Group Is Its Own Worst Enemy by Clay Shirky. Any suggestions of where to focus my attention? Buster Seven Talk 02:12, 28 January 2017 (UTC)
It's hard for me to pick because there's so much good stuff there. The section at the end of Part 1 on LambaMOO is very applicable to Wikipedia, as it discusses how they tried to eliminate a hierarchy, and in the end felt compelled to reinstate one. The sections on "Three Things to Accept" and "Four Things to Design For" are very instructive in what a community needs to understand and plan for. isaacl (talk) 03:24, 28 January 2017 (UTC)
