Dear Fred thank you for informative, insightful and thoughtful email.
I am again very sad to hear that people who have been 'coordinating' ECA Madrid take active steps to direct 'governing' in 'managerial' way over and over again in this NGO-industrial complex loophole.
I will not go into details of what is structurally problematic with that proposal until we have situation of acknowledging failures and joint, decentralised and mediated work on evaluations and planing.
However I fully support your path with minor terminology adjustments :-)
- rather than calling it #rebooting - i would consider it #refactoring as some things have been good and work results OK, but structures behind need to be substituted and recalibrated
- rather than using #governing - we use only #selfgoverning as this term explicitly leaves agency on each of us to act on and not go at all in direction of elected - representatives even if in the best 'democratic' election process...
- rather than just decentralised management and coordination - it would be useful to think of also distributed management and reduced coordination by total transparency of work (all communication and activities recorded/archived in realtime as if it is open-source software development system, so this 'private' situation you describe above can not happen!)
In solidarity - Z
<3 you are sending it also in French - hope others respond also using non-english - only if they feel they express better
