Weiters: Social Software erzwingt ein unaufhaltsames, grundlegendes Umdenken der Gesellschaft: Netzwerke mit positiven Rückkoppelungseffekten kann man nicht mehr unter Kontrolle bringen. Macht verschiebt sich vom Anbieter auf den Nachfrager. Das Selbstbewusstsein der Gesellschaft steigt. "Ihr werdet Euch noch wünschen, wir wären politikverdrossen!"

The genius of capitalism and democracy is that both systems embrace the destructive forces of competition and self-interest and channel them in a positive direction.
Something similar needs to be done with information: a manner for arguments and information to compete in a way that kills the weak ideas and leaves only the strong.

The basic pattern of openness is that better access to information and better systems lead to better decisions and better living. This general principal is broadly accepted, but we're just now discovering that it also applies to the minutiae of our lives.
Sharing your boring thoughts and activities may seem narcissistic and self-absorbed at first, but there is virtue and benefit in it.

I suspect most of the techniques for discouraging stupid comments have yet to be discovered. Xkcd implemented a particularly clever one in its IRC channel: don't allow the same thing twice. Once someone has said "fail," no one can ever say it again.
