Techno Democracy Project : 'Using Technology to Improve Democracy'

TDP Notes
Version 0.4

"TDP Notes" are the initial brainstorming notes which the Techno Democracy Project is based on. All the sections and major sub-sections are linked to from the Table of Contents. More information on the background and purpose of "TDP" and "TDP Notes" is available in Section 1.

This document has been created incrementally over the course of a couple years. There may be, and probably are, discrepancies within the document as a whole due to the natural evolution of the author's thinking over this time period. Discrepancies will be resolved as they come to light.

[ It should be noted by anyone reading this document that it consists of ideas that may or may not be implemented by the Techno Democracy Project. It was intended only as a collection of brain storming notes, not as a blueprint cast in stone. Regardless of the language used to describe the ideas, they are all merely options for TDP, and others, to consider. As time as goes by, it may become apparent that some, many, or all of the ideas are not suitable for implementation. However, either way, this document can be a catalyst for further thought and discussion on the topics covered. ]
