From the consumption perspective Consumerium is about enabling a shift from affective buying behaviour based on illusions to affective buying behaviour based on [[features|information]] on the social and environmental impacts of the production and naturally the perceived quality of the product.
 
 
From the consumption perspective Consumerium is about enabling a shift from [[affective buying behaviour]] based on illusions to affective buying behaviour based on [[features|information]] on all social and environmental impacts of the production (often called the "[[comprehensive outcome]]") and naturally the perceived quality of the product (often called the "[[value]]").  This shift begins with understanding the real possibilities of a world where we know what we buy into when we buy, right at the [[retail shelf]] or [[checkout counter]].
 
 
 
This process began long ago with [[mandatory label]]s, but these are not fine grained or rich enough for everyone's [[individual buying criteria]].  They do not even manage to satisfy all [[institutional buying criteria|institutional]] or [[faction]]al criteria shared by many people.  They are just not good enough.  We seek to create a [[Consumerium buying signal]] that will convey everything that will really influence the decision, to the [[point of purchase]].

*[[Consumerium User Stories]] are typical cases of things going right or wrong with the [[Consumerium Services]];  Over time we hope the [[best cases]] are realized and the [[worst cases]] are avoided.  We gather these more extreme stories for purposes of figuring out HOW to pursue the best, and avoid worst.

We hope to achieve this by building one, two or more [[wikis]] and possibly other software for integration with [[legacy system]]s, what these are called and what distinguishes these facilities from each other and other issues are attempted to resolve in [[Consumerium Process]]-article.

One facility where we hope people will build an abundance of '''neutral information''' about [[product]]s and their [[service cycle|production processes]] and as many [[features|involved factors]] as possible. The integrity of this information will be negotiated and upheld by peer review in a similar manner as in [[Recyclopedia]] or [[Wikipedia]].

The integrity of this information will be negotiated and upheld by peer review in a similar manner as in [[Wikipedia]], The Free Encyclopedia and furthermore by maintaining a backend data storage called The Consumerium Vault which mostly validates the existance or non-existance of things the articles in The Content Wiki claim to refer to. The goal of the Content Wiki is to be '''objective'''. Content Wiki will draw much of it's [[Features|product information]] from existing [[product registries]] where applicable to avoid redundancy and error possibilities.
