What represents the minimum viable product, and what does it take to engineer the reality? What might be the opportunities for public/private partnerships? Who finds the funding? Is there a plan for sustainability? The question is not whether there are successful examples of community-owned platforms, but whether those examples will be sustained over the long-term.
