Introduction In this seminar, students will design a digital environment to house and facilitate participatory democracy. To ground the design, Massachusetts’s local form of government, known as “Open Town Meeting” (OTM), will be modeled as an example. OTM requires all interested townspeople to get together once a year and determine basic issues like the tax rate, zoning/development questions or allowing sex education in schools. The thesis of this seminar is that this very old form of direct democracy can be facilitated and made more broadly accessible by allowing remote users to participate in the decision rooms and by unleashing the right technology in and around those physical rooms. This rough design slide presentation sketches a possible interface, flow and function set for the remote users.
