Canonizer Organization Home Page
Canonizer.com is a Wikipedia type collaborative information system with some added structure to handle point of view (POV) information. Each canonizer 'topic' has an 'agreement statement' that is much like a wikipedia article. In addition to this there can be additional sub 'position statements' representing the position of various 'camps' or POV on that topic. POV statements can be organized in a structure. For example in a topic like God a 'Christian' position statement may exist under a monotheist statement which may exist under a theist statement. Supporting a lower camp like such a 'Christian' camp implies support of all higher level position statements.
This POV structure is prioritized, filtered or 'canonized' according to your own personal preferences. You can select an existing canonizer while browsing. If there isn't a canonizer that prioritizes and filters things the way you want it - you can submit or customize your own canonizer. For example a member of the LDS church may select a canonizer that counts 1 vote for people that claim membership in the LDS church and ignores all other 'support' while an atheist may select a similarly atheist canonizer. Hence when each of these diverse people browses a topic such as God in canonizer.com, they will see the state of the art of what they want to see. Anyone can browse canonized information as a guest, but you must register in order to contribute, vote (join or support a position statement), set persistent preferences, collect a pay check and so on.
It is intended that Canonizer LLC be a leaderless organization where many of the decisions are made by a canonization process. How canonizer.com works, who gets paid how much, all the rules, priorities and so forth will all be determined by such a 'canonization' process where everyone can have at least some say. Techniques espoused in such books as The Myth of Leadership: Creating Leaderless Organizations
by Jeffrey Nielsen will be used. Amazon.com link.
