Workshop: Product development in collective decision making

Hi all!

We’re holding a workshop on creating—all attendees together—a hypothetical software product that would help us make collective decisions.

There is a lot of prior art in this domain of collective/democratic decision making and I’m sure most people in this forum have lots of ideas on the topic so it’d be interesting to see what we can think and brainstorm on this matter.

Our example usecase will be for a local London neighbourhood with a population of 100 to 1000 persons.

The event is happening at Newspeak House ( in Shoreditch / London.

  • Address: 133 Bethnal Green Rd, London E2 7DG
  • Date: Tue, Feb 15th, 2022
  • Time: 7pm

Lots more details here:

Hi @sirodoht sounds exciting, unfortunately won’t be able to join… What are your inspirations? Is Polis one of them?

Aha something that looks interesting, the is a group on the #openweb who have been working on this for the last year Online governance - openwebgovernancebody - Open Media Network

Hey Szczepan! I know Polis but have never seen it in action. Another I had in mind is loomio, but the general idea is to explore the space of what we can do a bit more!

Hey hamish! That looks very interesting, thank you for sharing.

Any more outcomes from the event, was an interesting discuern. Have you read The Soul of Man under Socialism by Oscar Wilde - Free Ebook its a good book on the subject.
