To recap quickly: The way the ministry and committees in the pre-internet era worked was usually by coordinated consensus. People have to know everybody in the same committee and when a person joins they have to know everybody else also. The problem was the human wetware. After 20 or more people these people stopped having the same egalitarian relationship. Some people become just listeners, you start to have hierarchy and bureaucracy and things like that. The way we fixed this was by rough consensus. As I talked about that re the dictionary. Every dictionary language involves people whose language I don’t speak. So those indigenous groups they all just take whatever I built from Moedict or built from Moe-Dict then use it to apply to their own material. They don’t have to ask for our permission
