Direct Democracy - My presentation in Nottingham
Heyhey... after a year of hard office work, it's like the good old times again: my blog seems to contain mostly notes of various conferences I've been to :-) (By the way, I also had an interesting trip to Dublin last week, maybe I'll write about that later.)
On Wednesday night I'm off to Notthingam, where I'm attending a seminar titled "The political economy of peer production" organised by the Nottingham Trent University. Excited as I am I became a bit grandiose and chose as my subject the introduction of a system of direct democracy. In other words, I've been thinking I should replace all the current democratic governments we have.
Doing that is not a problem, but presenting the idea in 30 minutes is certainly not possible. So attached I've made available the slides I intend to present and also the full text of 14 pages that explains the system in more detail.
Update: I realised I had not attached a Creative Commons license to the PDF files, so now I did that. I also uploaded the original format OpenOffice files in case somebody would like to excercise their right to edit or re-use my work.
