Web 2.0 A New Method « PublicForums Introducing Ethelo… Decisions can be costly when they divide a group. All too often contentious issues polarize a community, government or organization. After endless debate and much money spent, executive or majority-based decisions can lead to ill-fitting solutions. Existing polling and voting software simply divides people into piles; the majority often rules, but the decision can be deeply unsatisfying to a large portion of the community. How It Works Ethelo works by breaking a decision down into the set of all possible options, and categorizes those options by issues, values and constraints such as costs. What It Means In ancient Greek, Ethelo means “to will, intend, resolve.” Why It’s Important The Ethelo decision-making engine incorporates a variety of quantitative approaches to measuring inequity aversion, and takes into account both personal satisfaction and resistance to unfairness when identifying outcomes that maximize collective support.

Digital scrapbooks for student creativity, self-expression, and imagination - Beeclip EDU SlideBoom Online deliberation Online deliberation is the fostering of serious, purposive discussion over the Internet through research and the use of dedicated software. It has similar aims to e-democracy. Online deliberation is very interdisciplinary, and includes practices such as online consultation, e-participation, online deliberative polling, online facilitation, online research communities, interactive e-learning, civic dialogue in Internet forums and online chat, and group decision making that utilizes collaborative software and other forms of computer-mediated communication. Work in all these endeavors is tied together by the challenge of using electronic media in a way that deepens thinking and improves mutual understanding. Open international conferences on online deliberation have been held at Carnegie Mellon University in 2003, Stanford University in 2005, and the University of California, Berkeley in 2008. The most recent conference was held at the University of Leeds, June 30-July 2, 2010.
