Anarchy works reasonably well. I think that there definitely *is* a
LinuxSA just not one that has an easy-to-describe formalised and legal
structure. And this suits us just fine, we've had monthly meetings for at
least four years all of which [except I think the December ones when
Christmas tends to get in the way] have been well attended.
What really irks me every now and then, though, is that entities such as
the Government, newspapers and so forth don't always deal well with
loosely defined organisations. Sometimes, rightly or wrongly, they expect
to deal with a (sort of) organised, legal entity.
Also, having an anarchic organisation makes it very difficult to work out
what that organisation is saying. Or indeed, if it is saying or requesting
I'm not sure how to address this; I maintain that one can have a
formalised organisation that still suits the anarchists.
