This is excellent, Jack. This is the kind of common sense that we need to ensure The DAO succeeds.
Step one must be to agree the purpose. It looks to me like the choice of people chosen to occupy the Curator role implies the purpose to be to build the Universal Sharing Network, built upon the foundations laid by the Ethereum Foundation and make it a part of ordinary life. I know that Gavin Wood recently resigned from this role, to avoid confusion, but purpose is the foundation that guides all subsequent actions, and only humans can decide on it.
How do we agree that this is the purpose of The DAO? If this isn’t it’s purpose, what is it?
