Why not let social media run the country?

Why not let social media run the country? | eParticipate! | Scoop.it

Why bother having elections and votes in Parliament, when you can find out what the people want in real time, 24 hours a day, on social media?

 

A piece of software, WeGov, being developed by computer scientists at Southampton University, with help from the Hansard Society and EU funding might help facilitating that idea.

PEP-NET Webinar invitation: New online tools to support argumentation in policy debates

PEP-NET Webinar invitation: New online tools to support argumentation in policy debates | eParticipate! | Scoop.it
PEP-NET will be a European network of all stakeholders active in the field of eParticipation.

 

In a series of webinars, four new prototype tools will be presented, followed by an evaluation of the tools in which participants can discuss further improvements and the potential impact of the tools on policy-making.

 

Based on material from the EU’s consultation on the Green Paper on Copyright in the Knowledge Economy, the participants will learn how to formalise and visualise arguments, how to estimate the effects of policy proposals with the help of policy modelling, and how opinions about arguments are assessed with the help of structured consultations.

New Legislative Alert Service in the US - Scout!

New Legislative Alert Service in the US - Scout! | eParticipate! | Scoop.it

A new free service by the sunlight foundation called Scout, alerts users to any movements in legislation (both on the federal and state levels) in which they've indicated an interest. Users can choose to be alerted through e-mail, text messages, and news feeds.

 

Something alike Europe knows for quite some time, try: http://parltrack.euwiki.org/ It's free as well, just lacking the nice overpriced presentation video :)

 

Here is a recent article about Scout by techpresident:
