Eclipse Phase has some interesting ideas on using social capital and direct democracy in a democratic socialist culture to manage group projects for the benefit of a society as a whole. Perhaps as megacorporate identities in OA are explored, a discussion of their functions in different economic systems might be a good inclusion?

Yes, certainly
you're welcome to add some ideas like what eclipse phase talks about
there would be a wide variety of different forms of "megacorps" and I think half the discussion we've had was more of megacorps from some kind of post-capitalist/ cooperative perspective AFAIK

although originally megacorps were supposed to be some kind of massive multinational company which took on some function of the state, there might also be some kind of nation-state owned megacorps

this whole discussion might be complicated? by the fact that 'default' OA society is both post-capitalist -and- post-communist by the time of the first federation even if it resembles some kind of communist utopia, because all or most of the labor is automated/ preformed by vots
so saying that we're talking about megacorps here from a capitalist perspective might be a bit like saying we're trying to talk about modern companies from a feudalist perspective
