eDemocracy Workshop

Just came back from the Building eDemocracy Workshop at OSU in Columbus Ohio, where I was invited to present on visualization tools for public participation. My presentation can be downloaded here.
We experienced a new tool for live online collaboration, that supports America Speaks participation model.
Also Alexandra Samuels wrote up the outcomes of one of the workshops, on how to structure online deliberation in a way that promotes civil dialogue.
Here is the synopsis:
1. Keep your goal visible.
2. Keep your rules visible.
3. Use moderation effectively
