vTaiwan: Public Participation Methods on the Cyberpunk Frontier of Democracy | Civic Hall

In the midst of the signal failure known as the US electoral season, here’s something to be inspired about: a true story about rational deliberation on a national scale.

 

Governance buffs, check out vTaiwan and the g0v (that’s “gov” with a zero instead) movement in the links below.

Pretty inspiring! Basically in one instance (debating taxi reforms/disruptions) they got Uber, the taxi-drivers’ association, the biggest taxi company and the relevant Ministries to come together to discuss and agree on (binding) decisions. It’s pretty mind-blowing. Various community factions + Government + Tech (as enabler/insight-drawer) = Governance
