Some notes taken on the first meeting of the socialswarm people.

(It can not sound any cooler, innit?)

Oh and BTW, we take only open source into account. Who'd ever like to use a closed source voting system?

notes:

20:59  <lynX> what i dont like about adhocracy is superficial: 1. it includes google scripts
21:00  <lynX> 2. people turn off delegations just so they dont need to worry about user registration
21:46  <codethief> lynx: but we're not here for trying out *liquid* democracy. we're here for decision making.
21:48  <lynX> ct: ack, delegations may not be needed for this job

now, keep the flame up! :^D
