  •  A better corporate predator (9+ / 0-)

    Having tools like you suggest would be very enabling, but I think it goes beyond that.  Given some minor extensions to the tools for community building present on this very site, it would be feasible to host an entire online corporation dedicated to collective action.

    A recent post by DWG spoke of the rapacious multinationals, bent only on profit regardless of externalized costs.  I say it's time we took a page out of that "personhood" playbook and go one better: the collaborative corporation.  Based in part on the concepts of benefit corporations, the company/community can form cooperative structures that would provide products and services better, at lower cost.

    We need to evolve the corporate beast into something with a mind and a heart that can out-compete the baddies.

    Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear. ~William E. Gladstone, 1866
