I am always trying to think of provocative questions to write on our Facebook page. (It’s the nature of the beast–provocative questions generate more comments.) I started thinking about consensus. While I, personally, am a fan, I also know there are people who don’t think that it works. This is the question that I wrote on Facebook:
I got nine comments, which wasn’t bad–and over three hundred folks looked at it, so I would say that it did fairly well.
Here are the comments that we received. As you can see, people had feelings.
I will add that I have seen consensus work and suspect that when it doesn’t, it’s usually because it isn’t being done right–or folks are trying to use it to get advantage–or both.
