Given this chance to refactor civilization, would you rather make some change or let it run its course?

@ykgoon I do think this is a great chance to try new stuff, but I'm always nervous about who's gonna be in charge of any change


@machado and this chance is available to everybody. Curtailing bad ideas may be more important than bringing on good ideas.

@ykgoon People focus too much on ideas and not enough on execution.

I really hope that, whatever changes happen, they happen from the bottom up. Field test locally, then adapt and scale up. Let different contexts produce different solutions.
