Open Congress, as an online legislative platform, should enable the People of a nation to introduce, debate and vote and all pieces of legislation. If Open Congress is to rely on study committees to review the adequacy and accuracy of the studies accompanying legislative drafts, the system should also provide the means for voters to elect committee members and for committee members to deliver their reviews.
This is an idea for a possible process for realistically achieving full automation of online facilitation of reaching consensus. Comments are welcome! If you would like to participate, please shoot me an email to ziggy[at]occupysydney.org.au, and we can kick-start a workgroup to discuss and refine this idea.
