"In a recent interview, Howard Rheingold (author of Smart Mobs) discussed the possibility of a 'new economic system' born of 'unconscious cooperation' embodied by such technologies as Google links and Amazon.com lists, Wikipedia, wireless devices using unlicensed spectrum, Web logs, and open source software." Trolls of course defy this model and are very often accused of conciously cooperating in troll organizations.

"Rheingold speculates that 'the technology of the Internet, reputation systems, [[online community|online communities, mobile devices...may make some new economic system possible... We had markets, then we had capitalism, and socialism was a reaction to industrial-era capitalism. There's been an assumption that since communism failed, capitalism is triumphant, therefore humans have stopped evolving new systems for economic production.'" - [1] That of course is an assumption only of the capitalist elite in countries where all economic development has stalled. Trolls continue the development anyway.

A robust social economy consisting of cooperating parties doing voluntary social and ecological work at all scales and across all borders, defying any power structure to knit strong factions together that can defy any one sysop power structure even at Wikipedia, is the community building that creates social capital based on resistance to sysop vandalism and promotion of troll-sysop struggle. In other words, through trolling and troll-friendly practices, all trolls including sysops must eventually encounter each other's perspective, negotiate, and find political virtues in common. These virtues enable more rapid formation of social capital itself, so that grown trust soon outstrips found trust in any given web forum.

The social network software that enables this best will be Consumerium Services, which unlike other social software is founded on the most basic principle of gnawlij: suppressed information is (at least slightly) more likely to be true. Accordingly, trolls are (at least slightly) more likely to be correct, and the New Troll point of view must become the Consumerium buying signal almost by definition - a near perfect gnawlij expression.
