There are a number of "general" structures of sites.

Hierical sites -- Yes I know that all sites are hierical, but the original set of sites were generally relatively static with a main page, sub pages, etc.

Blogs, Mailing lists -- e.g. linear sites -- Information is stored at the top, with the possibility of comments, fixed link out-pointers...

Forums -- generally 2 level comment areas with generally: 1) Topics, 2) Item (comments...)

Wikis -- sites that permit any set of approved (or all) users to edit any page.
  • Wikipedia -- the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.
  • GrepWiki --a place where readers of Ed Foster's GripeLog can organize and share their experiences and opinions in the way they think best.

  1. Populist Economy -- e.g. run the economic system for the average and less well off rather than the wealthy.

  2. Individual morality -- e.g. permit the people and families to manage their own moreality rather than determining the socially acceptable morality by the government.

Belief in the Common good in addition to the invisible hand of unregulated free enterprise.
