Why a government wiki?Edit
- The world has formidable numbers to contend with: 6.5 billion people, 1.27 quadrillion Btu energy to be used every day, 130 million cubic meters of water to be delivered every day, 325 billion kilometers of movement of people to be managed every day, 8 million tons of solid wastes to be collected, removed and processed every day, 13 petabytes (1 petabyte is 1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes OR 1015 bytes) of information to be processed every day?.
- More than 193 countries in the world with dozens of states and thousands of towns and villages. Tens of thousands of governments and hundreds of thousand departments-
- That is a massive system to deal with a world on the edge of chaos. It is beyond any well-intentioned government to manage the formidable challenges of our times.
- Chaordic (the intersection of chaos and order- see dee Hock or visa )- organizations are organizations with a common purpose and principle- participants take what they like and what works for them. A wiki provides the chaordic framework to help the community to work to common purposes.
- Don't forget- this is a wiki to help the community to create a better world for everyone. Remember, we're all in this together!
- This wiki hopes to transform the governance space into a live chaordic community- it will encourage discovery of common purpose, learning of best practice, global citizenry and local responsibility.
