In any community, there will be popular practices and unpopular ones.
Rarely are the best practices one and the same as the most popular practices.
There is a process for developing and establishing organizational best practices. Among all the proponents of the idea of Ethical Best Practices, none are more distinguished or more prominent in the field than Peter Senge
, author of The Fifth Discipline: The Theory and Practice of the Learning Organization
While Senge's works are not unpopular among successful learning organizations, his ideas appear to be singularly unpopular among the core cabal of dysfunctional organizations like Wikipedia. The ruling cabal of the Wikimedia Foundation appears to be allergic to Senge's ideas, and unhappy with anyone who has the temerity to introduce his recommended Best Ethical Practices into the Wikisphere.
One wonders whether a venture capitalist of McNamee's stature might succeed in injecting Senge's notion of Ethical Best Practices into Jimbo's lamentably barren mindscape.
