this is a cop out and not particularly useful.
FD.o has a website and a public identity (brand, if you will). it has
documents and software associated with it, it has hardware resources, it has
processes for some basic items, etc, etc..
whether there is a defined organization of people or not, there is certainly a
defined entity here.

i agree. where i seem to diverge from most others here is that i don't believe
these people are going to magically appear. i think there needs to be some
leadership excercised to reach out and help find these people and show them
the path here. once here, i think things can go well. but i do not see these
people appearing magically of their own accord to be realistic.
i say this because it hasn't happened yet.
