I wasn't talking about "participatory democracy" and did not mention
it in that
I was suggesting the government could use web pages which are
accessible/mobile compatible, without copyright restrictions and
about how from July the ANU is using the web to teach public servants
to communicate online and combat global warming:
This is old fashioned "representative democracy" as we have in
Australia at present, just web enabled. The techniques can also be
applied within organisations (such as companies and government
agncies) which don't use democracy.
The only message to Link which I could find using the term
"participatory democracy" this year was in March:
