Recently, we held the second session of the relaunched Demos for Democracy program. The program holds interactive online introductions to some of the latest tools designed to bring greater openness and collaboration to how we govern. We offer these in an effort to jumpstart conversation about what works and what doesn’t, and to provide developers an interested audience to help refine and improve their tools.
We were joined by Ward Cunningham and Mike Caulfield, the activists for and contributors to the Smallest Federated Wiki: a wiki designed for in-depth discussion and analysis. Cunningham, creator of this new iteration of the wiki, wanted to solve a problem he felt existed in the classic wiki model: personal ownership.
