tech facilitated deliberation

dialogue around a subject

   as small as the class
   or as large as whatever

practices

   especially good for ?

nobody can speak twice until everybody has spoken once

   simple rules
       robert's rule of order--parliamentary

wiki in the mix!

   "which could be good or not"-jz

timing

   what we ask people to do before
   during
       like the question tool or other stuff

peter's role is helping after the sessions

   "our greatest opportunity to contribute is after the fact"
    but stuff could be relevant during too

Mel got a wiki page going!

   woohoo!
   sources about different practices (could go on the wiki?)
   
   there prob. arent readable/exciting scholarly resources. boo :(

at most 3 sessions (and maybe two) between now and dec.

how to structure those two sessions?

   hmm.
       

ALSO substantitive reading:

   ?
   case studies about how people (one from bc) revamping the voting system
       applied things like this
       yeaaah
       this is a book
       we need that book digitized (@505 grizwold/berkman?!)

deliberation day--colorado

   more polarized after the conversation!

wikipedia chapter from the future of the internet jz talks about

   practice next to technology

"you dont' just throw a wiki in the middle of things and expect things to get good"jz


looking for deliberation--

   wikipedia lit
   applications without using the word deliberation

wellcome platform

   engaged issues (bigthink is in touch with them)

offer the welcome platform something to talk about with our students

they're nervous that welcome will flop?

gergory bernarda


Dharmishta--going to talk to C4FCM

Mel--design research lab

   communication
   engineers and design groups

they would design technologies and try them out would analyze them in sociological ways

wikipedia chapter stuff from cass about group deliberation case study from british columbia ??

(add hj post about what is civic media to the wiki)

next meeting could (should) be demo day

examples:

we could show a slashdot moderated conversation and view different levels show wikipedia from the inside demo the question tool

google just came out with an app that does this cyber.law.harvard.edu/questions

twitter use in conferences

also add delicious!

heat map for gpl 3

campaign we're calling what's your plan role call magazine plans of action that are going to be presented in role call magazine letting users submit their own plans

prototype launched in three weeks


popularizing

demo an annotation engine

 www.reframeit.com ?

lets you annotate web pages in the margins essentially put post its

have a group seize upon that tool--then later in week 5 use it to annotate something

range of tools--to get these people thinking

20 people in the seminar

break them up into groups

Additional annotation platforms: Diigo, Fleck, Stickis, ShiftSpace, TrailFire, Disqus, FriendFeed (has an annotation component)

Sessions

Google books deal

 Guests: Harvard lawyers who hate it; Alex MacG who negotiated for GOOG; Jeffrey Cunard from Debevoise; maybe Brewster Kahle (Internet Archive)

Corruption and Change Congress

 Guest: Lessig

Cultures of cooperation

 Guests: Jimbo, joint w/Yochai class

has mark sageman done things since 2004?

   this would make him a good candidate

Diana mutz interesting work on activism

Henry Ferrell


google wiki

   http://www.techcrunch.com/2007/09/03/google-wiki-prepares-to-launch/


user generated news korea political organization (fundraising/obama campaign or facebook)

   chris hughes consulst for obama about facebook

people from causes on facebook (get this into demo day) chris kelly or zuckerman

is this interesting from an advocacy and activism standpoint

   the uses of facebook

something anonyminty wise?

 - Aaron Swartz presents proposal for Berkman to host Tor node


problem solving!

students do a big think session onone of the questions of the week

   produce content around each (week?)

dharmishta idea: in every class, do a (collaborative?) activity on the topic of the week, rather than have a presentation about how other people are doing these things...

jz idea no paper

   but do a thing on the website/project

international internet governence

olpc! (week)

open source software coleman schoben omahoni? siobhan o'mahoney reading: Karl fogel how open source software projects run

eric raymond politics and problems

mobile technologies huge in the developing world

   (dharmishta thoughts: one of the most hopeful but also one of the most closed platforms! aaah!) (mel: on this note, it would be neat to see how projects like android and openmoko are trying to turn their phone platforms into generative ones... how do you start a development/user community from scratch?)

two possibilities: 1. 2. carrier problem google, fcc

People to look up for assg'd reading

Some sense of the subject-matter, even more so a sense of the process
	Scheduling some fall meetings to charter subgroups, each of which is responsible for a week of the class itself (in the spring)

The idea  everybody will design a delib. procedure for a group as small as the class, as big as unbounded

Practices  in class
Technologies  the same as a practice, but using tech
Timing  what happens between class?
	Big Think  after the fact, but there might be some things in 

Open the wiki page to the class after a first meeting

2-3 sessions during Fall Semester

Meeting 1: Assign some bg readings, talk about what deliberation is
Meeting 2: "Demo Day" e.g. Slashdot, Wikipedia, Question Tool (Berkman), Del.icio.us, Twitter, other conference stuff, BT's "What's Your Plan?" (with Roll Call mag), ORG's Consult, Google SearchWiki, Facebook Causes (FB activism generally), Knol, Ask Metafilter, MindJet
