> A do-ocratic example: 30 people are going to Burning Man and camping together. Mary asks, “What if we organize a food pool so we can all cook and eat together?” Others answer, “Sure, I’d be a part of that,” or “I can make cake on Friday night.” Soon, Mary is calling campmates to borrow pots, pans and utensils, collating different people’s dietary restrictions, collecting money for food, and organizing trips to the store to buy supplies. At camp, she posts work signup sheets for cooking and cleanup, answers questions, and fills in when others can’t (or don’t) do their shifts.
A new campmate may grumble, “Jeez, why does Mary get to decide what everyone eats and when they work? Who put her in charge?" The answer is "the do-ocracy put her in charge". The very act of organizing the food pool puts her in charge of the food pool. She can't force you to eat the food or work a certain shift, but you have to respect her authority. This means that if you want to use the pots and pans for something different, or of you want to use the food money to order different food, you have to ask her first. However, if she disappears in the middle of the camp, leaving the food pool in disarray, she looses that authority and anyone else can step in.
