GPS systems

We all need to have GPS and put into our bodys at birth and cameras in our houses, cars and at work to monitor everything we do so we won't be tempted to have a personal moment or thought to ourselves. We could have it linked direct to every government agency and insurance company too. While we are at it lets do away with money to...lets just have credits applied to our chips so that what we buy could be better tracked ...more »

Do not use this method to obtain input, it is a waste of time

This website could have been a useful way to get valid ideas, but instead it has been hijacked by a small group of people with too much time and too few values. The reason government is not always open is because the presence of the noisy few prevents real discussion or decision making. Thus government has to move behind closed doors in just the same way private business does. This forum would be more useful if it ...more »

Terminology - Open "Blinking Words" project

"Blinking Words" (an MIT term) are words or phrases that take on many possible interpretations, and where definitions blink between different meanings depending upon who hears it. Ambiguities in language can lead to variation in public action. A SIMPLE Open-to-the-Public Dialogue web project inviting the public to list ALL blinking words (surrounding specific areas of public action and public money) could make the ...more »

Divest Legacy Federal Publishing Businesses to Endow a 'Knowledge Institute'

Legacy organs within the federal government, including most notably the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Energy Information Administration, and the Government Printing Office (among others) engage in 20th Century research and publishing practices which no longer meet the government's needs in the Digital Environment. While dead-tree publishing is rapidly becoming obsolete, the need for in-house specialty publishing houses ...more »

The Process of Illumination

New Idea: Open Government Dialogue I believe the most effective way for creating a more participatory, transparent, and collaborative government is to expand the collective worldview of all participants to be more open and inclusive, one worldview at a time. And the best way to do this is through participant dialogue. I propose a series of dialogue topics for the many discussion groups already formed and interested ...more »

Vision of Progress

In need to find hundreds of billions of dollars for new investments, the federal government would benefit from the most favorable borrowing conditions if it were clear that the intended investments would lead to the creation of a new infrastructure of transportation and production where efficient use of resources would allow economic activity to take place without bumping against the physical limitations that we are currently ...more »

A "road map" for information for community development

Community development data as constituted is generally in no order, it is not indexed, and it is very difficult to find and put to use. We need a "one-stop shopping" site on the Web, for community development information. Information is not sorted in the order clients expect to find it. We need a "one-stop shopping" Website for community development. Many of these tasks are already addressed, in some small way, somewhere ...more »

Building Consensus via Group Dialog

The idea here is to implement a dialog between groups using a simple voting-on-messages technology. Each round of the process, participants will write messages and then vote to select one message to represent the group. If there are many messages, the voting has to go in cycles, with random distribution of a few messages to each voter each cycle, and dropping some proportion of the lowest vote getters each time around. ...more »

Specifically teach Dialogical Skills to the country via leadership and modeling in government.

As a Marriage Counselor I found that repeately couples (and all others) would get distracted from reaching understanding and cooperative interactions, by slipping into un-owned absolutist language structures. Instead of sharing our views of reality, we put forth our view as the "right" one and stir defenses in our listeners. So we relationship therapists model and teach stopping this. I believe that the problem ...more »
