    1717Item 0: Describe:
    18  * Ecosystem in which May First/People Link operates
    19    * Because there seems to be a main constituent group that MF/PL is conspiring to serve and connect (namely, progressive organizations), the first order of thinking would be to understand the needs of small progressive organizations, and understand their constraints, needs and values.
    20    * Once we have a clear picture of that, we want to imagine these organizations being connected and served in a powerful way, and what that would look like.
     18 * ECOSYSTEM: What is the ecosystem in which May First/People Link operates?
     19   * What are the different stakeholders that exist in the real world ecosystems of progressive organizations and information technology?
     20   * What are the needs of small progressive organizations?
     21   * What types of constraints exist in small progressive organizations in general and specifically with respect to information technologies?
     22   * What, coming from the perspective of a small progressive organization in this ecosystem (somewhat technologically illiterate), is valuable?
     23   * As technologists, are there values we are assuming or imposing that these organizations would not think of on their own?  What are they?
     24 * IDEAL: Once we have a clear picture of that, we want to imagine these organizations being connected and served in a powerful way, and what that would look like. 
     25   * What are the benefits that might be gained from connecting and networking progressive organizations?
     26   * Which of these would be obvious to the organizations?
     27   * Of the benefits that would not be obvious to these organizations, what would be required to educate these organizations?
    2128 * MEMBERSHHIP: Then we want to look at how MF/PL manifests it services currently, and how that measures up with the above thinking.  We want to ask ourselves:
    2229   * Does a membership model fit well with the needs, constraints and values listed above?
    2330   * Why is the membership model important?
    2431   * What has membership traditionally meant to MF/PL and how might it be re-ordered to satisfy the needs of all stakeholders better?
    25    * STRATEGY: what is the path forward for accomplishing this?
    26  * LEADERSHIP
    27    * Given the above, what form of leadership would best serve the above 'Ecosystem'?
    28    * What does leadership look like currently at MF/PL?
    29    * How do these two forms of leadership compare with one another.  What is the ideal?
    30    * STRATEGY: how can we move this organization from where it is now with respect to leadership, to where it should ideally be?
