Metcalfe's law does not apply to commoning
- Re: Metcalfe's law - hmm interesting. I feel like commoning tends to prefer federation. So keeping groups small in a sense, but then connecting these smaller groups. Commoning maybe works best scaling out rather than scaling up.
- E.g. Rely on Heterarchy and Rely on Distributed Structures patterns
- I almost feel like the larger an individual commons gets, the more it tends towards tragedy. Or at least the governance system has to get much more robust.
- Might be wrong there though.
Type : notion
Confidence : 2
Gut feeling : 5
Not too sure about this. Just a hunch. But feels worth exploring. It generally fits with my values of small things federating.
