I don't have the faintest idea. I just thought we'd need a case study to clarify our thoughts. Eventually the modified document should become something like a charter for Monkey Speak. Maybe you should add a paragraph on the status of the document and by whom it should be created. >I got the impression it was the former. Maybe I >misunderstand things somewhat, but I thought that one of the beauties of >this system was that imposed regulations by the steering committee on the >group would be limited (reporting, basic form that would effect the system >as a whole, etc.). The rest would be left up to the group. They're the >ones who are doing the work. They're the "experts", if you will. I think >it's important that they develop how they run. If you disagree with certain points, please rewrite the appropriate paragraph(s) and put your version below mine. >Things like communication from group to steering comittee, communication >among groups, how the steering commmittee is created, etc. would be >decided by the steering committee. But I don't see much sense in the >steering committee dictating how many people can work on propaganda. You mean the 7 members max? I think many people will not like it, but I think it's a good idea so I put it in. If you disagree, rewrite the paragraph and put your version below mine. >i do like the work you've put into this. i just think it should be clear >that this document should come from the group itself, imo. We just should start somewhere. ppk _________________________________________________________________ Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer at http://explorer.msn.com/intl.asp.
