w:Donella Meadows' twelve places to intervene in a system applied to Consumerium :

  • 12. numbers (subsidies, taxes, standards) - article lengths, numbers of links, number of editors
  • 11. The size of buffers relative to the flows
  • 10. material stocks and flows - server hardware, comfortable places to surf and type
  • 9. The length of delays, relative to the rate of system change
  • 8. regulating negative feedback loops - ?????
  • 7. driving positive feedback loops -
  • 6. information flows (who does and does not have access to what kinds of information) - XML/DTD, talk pages
  • 5. the rules of the system (incentives, punishment, constraints) (Mc Flurry stuff ?)
  • 4. the power of w:self-organization, e.g. of trolls, little tin god sysop
  • 3. the goals of the system, e.g. avoiding becoming Wikipedia
  • 2. the mindset out of which the goals, rules, feedback structure arise
  • 1. the power to transcend paradigms, change mental structure.
