Deliberative democracy workshop online presence

E-mail Print PDF

This section of the website is for participants attending the workshop in Sydney (3-5 Feb 2011), as well as for those who are interested in following it from afar. Here's how it works:

As the workshop proceeds, organisers and participants can generate blog posts about the ideas that are being developed. Posts may also be quickly published to show the questions that are opened for dialogue, and quick snapshots of the activity in the room. We hope that many participants will be willing to scribe and post material as we move forward.

twitter will be used to communicate in real time to those outside of the room. Keep tabs on the hashtag #delibworkshop. Notifications are sent to twitter manually about posts and automatically about comments. Participants in the room will be encouraged to send tweets about what's going on. The twitter backchannel will be constantly scrolling on display in the room. Tweet often, and don't forget the hashtag!

With comments and twitter, we hope that we can carry on an informal and productive conversation that reaches well beyond the physical walls of the workshop.

We'll be developing proposals for research which you can view and discuss. These will be imported into a PrioritySpend poll for you to prioritise. Proposals can be emailed to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Participants in the room are encouraged to take pictures with their mobile devices and email them to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Make sure that your subject line is set to #delibworkshop. Sorry, no captions are possible. The pictures will appear automatically on this page, or you can view them on my Google Picasa website. (I'll archive them to the DDC site later).

Documents can also be made available for anyone to download. Login is required to upload. The page offers several feeds for your feed-reader too. But we won't provide an audio feed because there will certainly be too much talking going on to capture easily!

Following the completion of the workshop, this blog will serve as its online archive.
