The Pillars of Success

The village decides the outcome. The village attracts the members with a connected intention to make the kind of change they know is important.

Trust is built in an environment of diversity through strong social connections and equal speak time and forms the foundations necessary to recruit new members, explore ideas and come to consensus on taking action.

Everyone connected to everyone else within a neighborhood provides the flow of ideas necessary for arriving at practical, creative solutions for obtaining results.

Social incentives are designed to support productive behavior of idea generation, membership growth, and measurable results. Incentives work best when the community benefits more than the individual.

Exploration both inside and outside provides the new ideas for creativity and productivity.

Measurable results provide the reality for transparency and feedback for the village. For example it could be tons of food locally produced or amount of social capital created.

Tipping point decision making provides the mechanism for consensus based decision making. New ideas through exploration and peer pressure created through social incentives results in  Explosive Growth

Technology provides the organic infrastructure that enables all of the above in a scalable way.
