Useful stuff if you want a quick overview of how municipal-level petitioning can work as part of the democratic process. I was sent these links by Stephen Hilton at Bristol, but I can’t see any problems with publicising them more widely, since they’re public:
- The first is a presentation about epetitioning in Bristol – a video accompanied by presentation slides, here.
- This is a guide to e petitioning in Bristol
- There is also a webcast of Bristol’s e-Democracy Day, here
While I’m on the subject of Stephen and Bristol, can I direct you to his opinion piece over at Headstar’s E-Government Blog – ‘Are we ready to lose control?‘ where he examines the implications of Web 2.0 for local government.
