The Open Politics Project

This site encompasses everything I care about.  Open, democratic, citizen centered and developed policy.

Open Politics Project is a project to create a new kind of politics. They are starting by writing a manifesto, but they want everyone to build it together.

You can read through a range of manifesto headings from Education to society, democracy to Energy and Housing.  If you want to add something, or disagree you can click edit.  The proposed change will then be voted on which you can see here.

I urge all my friends from different sectors to get involved and use your knowledge to share your thinking on this.  I added only one line, with many of you, we could have a beautiful, simple, democratic manifesto online, all powered by crowdsourced people power and knowledge.

James Smith also known online as @floppy has written a post on why he started it, what software is used and some of the thinking behind why open source model works for this kind of collaboration.
