Well, Jason, we definitely agree about the prevalence of ancient meeting formats. I took a quick look at your governance video. As you might expect, I’m all for greater member participation in governance, as you suggest, but I’m not convinced that eliminating board governance is a good idea. An organization’s executive branch needs effective oversight, and I think that’s hard to provide via purely member-based feedback.

I would add further examples of how government and governance is still conducted through ancient meeting formats including parliamentary procedure, Robert Rules, deputations, hearings, town halls, and secret cabinet meetings. These models are just not sufficient for the complexity of our modern challenges. Here is an alternative model I’ve been working on https://futuregovernance.info
