Oh my god I just loathe sitting through meetings that use formal consensus process. I hate it. I hate it so much. I have little to say right now about the details of why. Just… ARGH.

None of which is to say I’m against consensus as a good in many situations, I’m not, I’m all for that. But as a formal decision making process…. fuck that.

Stuff to read later….
