Internet group according to "Art of Agreement"
- Implementation: bees & hives
- Practical considerations
- Freedom of Speech (of posting)
- Freedom of not listening (of not seeing, of not reading)
- Responsibility (for posts)
- Axioms 1-2 imply that everybody and nobody is a moderator, i.e. every participant $X$ is a moderator for $X$, and for nobody else.
- Responsibility means that no post gets ever erased (it may be declared obsolete though, while it is still available to the public)--think of wiki's history.
Implementation: bees $\&$ hives
It's a highly decentralized system (tightly glued together by links, see below).
Some mathematicians may start hive Art of Thinking. Some other people may start hive Mathematics 2013++. There is no need for more than one hive devoted to mathematics but if that's what they want, nobody will stop them.
Hives form a partially ordered set. You may start a Geometry hive, and declare it to be under Art of Thinking, but above Euclidean Geometry hive. More about the organization of the world of Bees and Hives later.
You start a hive by yourself or with others by simply agreeing on its name, and by creating bee sites, which declare that they are, say, a bee site of Art of Thinking or of Mathematics 2013++, etc. Each participant, a bee, has their own Internet place under their own exclusive control. Typically, a bee (a participant) is just one person (Internaut).
The goal of a hive is to create a dynamically growing data base of posts (texts) and tables of contents, i.e. tables of links to other tables and to posts.
As a bee, you write mainly texts (research, comments about posts by other bees, teaching materials, etc.), but also tables which organize your bee site, which allow readers to navigate your bee site. Your tables may go beyond your own site, they may include links to any posts and tables within your hive. Of course you may also promote any materials, and you may have links to any Internet pages--but that would be more like writing an article (for your hive), for instance something like "Internet resources concerned with mathematics of XVIII century"--it would not be a part of hive's partially ordered hierarchical organization.
If you are socially inclined then you may declare yourself an administrator (with no power though), and then you create a hive site, say for Art of Thinking, e.g. Internaut $X$ may create site titled: Hive Art of Thinking by $X$. The difference between a bee site and a hive site is the intent. In the case of a hive site you want to serve the whole hive rather than just your own bee site.
There can be several hive sites (administrative sites) for the same site, just any number of them. Administrators create table by including the links selectively (rather than all of them).
Any bee or administrator may maintain lists of scores which evaluate posts and bees. Finally, bees and administrators may provide tables of posts and bees which should be avoided.
Realistically speaking, the described system has a chance only if some (relatively simple to code) software will be created, so that maintaining the tables of contents will be easy. For instance, you may like to copy someone else's several tables, and adopt them for your own bee site after some modifications. The software should also protect you from running into material which you declared to be avoided, e.g. when you want to avoid what administrator X suggests to avoid. Care always has to be taken to avoid loops, to follow always a partial order (rather than a tree--the tree organization is often not adequate).
Art of Agreement is based on one commandment only: you shall not impose.
This commandment applies to adults of sound mind. It's not something to discuss. You either accept it or not. You may only discuss whether or not Art of Agreement leads to better economy, to higher quality of life, etc.
The above bees & hives organization is an example. It should work not because an authority (like wikipedia teen editors) is moderating things for you, including the moderation of you. Instead, you yourself choose your authorities which you follow voluntarily (to whatever extent you choose), and whom you may drop at any time, whom you may replace with other authorities, etc. Why, you may be an authority yourself :-)
Good mathematicians easily recognize other good mathematicians. They would read each other, and they would read papers by unknown to them authors, who are recommended by good mathematicians. The recognition spreads around easily and quite fast. This way a high quality body of mathematics is created and collected without being adversely affected by more numerous weaker articles. And all this judgmental notions of "good" (partially subjective, partially objective) are custom taylored to each bee (which is nice, I feel :-)).
