Direct Collaborative Action and Direct Response

From BBC News:

“This is what politics and political engagement are about in a digital age,” says Dr Twist. “Direct, collaborative action, and direct response.”

A virtual people’s parliament and an archive to store freedom of information requests are two ideas competing for the chance to be built on the web.

The competition is being held by MySociety.org, a charitable project that helps construct civic and community websites.

The first contest in 2003 resulted in the launch of WriteToThem.com, that allows people to contact politicians.

Anyone can submit a proposal and the winner will be announced in summer.
