Personal Democracy Forum 2008

Session: Design Principles for Online Democracy: Connecting Government and Constituents in the Internet Age
Why is it that the best designed government web portals are for collecting your taxes, and the worst ones are for gathering your input? Maybe it's time for Government 2.0. This panel of experts are are pioneers of e-democracy, and they will wrestle with these questions:
-How can we help elected officials listen and interact more effectively with their constituents?
-Can government be reinvented as a platform for civic collaboration?
-What lessons have you learned from your own e-democracy projects?
-What obstacles stand in the way of progress?
