Turns out that the Donella Meadows article on Places to Intervene in a System is indeed online after all. I got the following comment posted over the weekend pointing to the original source from Whole Earth magazine. Very much worth your time to read her reasoning behind the simple list of intervention points. Thank you Alex.

Jim, Note that the this material is sourced from “Places to Intervene in A System”, published in the Winter 97 issue of Whole Earth magazine (… I was publisher at the time). The article provides much more depth and texture. For those interested, it's available at: http://www.wholeearthmag.com/ArticleBin/109.html [chaosplayer News]
