Applying the principles of open source software to the development of political policy.
This is a test wiki, just trying out the tech to see if wiki has all the features we want. The central idea is to provide a place where people can
- collect together all the infomation they need to discuss a particular issue
- suggest policies and solutions to tackle the problem
- select out their prefered course of action through some sort of voting mechanism.
- maybe then plug that into writeToThem.com to instantly start lobbying your MP?
The idea derived from debates on a mailing list set up to discuss articles written by George Monbiot. Though it seems so obvious that I'm sure others out there have had a similar idea.
Wiki has an inbuilt category tag that might be a useful way to keep content organised and properly indexed. See the Category:OpenSource_policy_development page for a quick example
