Back in February I jotted down some reflections on eDemocracy in Scotland. I’d been back for a few months and was fairly disappointed by the progress the Scottish polity had made online.
First step to putting things right is a good diagnosis, and I hope you’ll participate (whether you’re kilted or not).
‘Democracy 2.0 – bringing innovation and the social web to the heart of governance in Scotland‘ will be an opportunity to reflect on Scotland’s experience of eDemocracy and discuss where it goes from here. I’m really excited to be joined on the panel by Sarah Davidson, Director of Communications at the Scottish Government) and Iain Bruce (of Sunday Herald fame).
Over the next few weeks I’m going to be reflecting on the developments there have been and the data that I’ll use in my opening. I’d also really welcome any thoughts or reflections you have.
