One of the things that really grabbed me in the Microsolidarity proposal is the concept of consciously limiting growth to sustainable levels, and growing by cell division and specialization rather than just getting bigger forever. Applying this concept to the online world, I wrote a blog post a while back to try to draw out the differences between the capitalist-funded, "cancerous growth" model for running online platforms, and the member-funded "sustainable growth" model:
