I find myself making big mistake in setting way to broad context in
Community I/O, Collaboration I/O still seems super generic and in many
ways I/O can create more confusion than clarification.

I want to emphasize the Economy part, and work around established terms
like Sharing Economy, Collaborative Consumption and in last years more
balanced Collaborative Economy. I would even include in description
couple of more specific tags: #carpooling #ridesharing #mealsharing
#foodcoops #coworking #hospitality #coliving #volunteering #swapping
#skillsharing #coproduction #commons etc.

I would also like to make it clear that it doesn't exclude commerce, but
at the same time puts clearly in scope economic interactions based on
sharing, collaboration, prosumption, volunteering etc.

Also staying agnostic towards various possible forms of accounting,
those already existing: barter, monatary purchase, reputation based
grant, donation/gift, merit/karma etc. as well as those now unknown but
which will appear in the future.

Maybe starting with writing a clear charter draft, together with other
interested people would make sense here? I would also refer to some
particular candidate technologies, for example:

* http://goodrelations-vocabulary.org
* http://schema.org/Offer, http://schema.org/Demand,
http://schema.org/Service
* http://microformats.org/wiki/h-listing
* https://web-payments.org/specs/

I think this would allow better decision for a possible venue...

Cheers!
