Sarah Connor

Nosemonkey is sceptical about Jo Twist's line of work.

He shouldn't be. I'd suggest that e-democracy will not take the shape that any of us suspect that it will. Using games as a way of getting people to deliberate in new ways is as good an idea as any.

And if e-democracy takes the direction that the current Wikipedia definition says that it will*, I for one will be arming myself and awaiting the final showdown.

A bit like Sarah Connor in the Terminator films.

David Wilcox (again) shows how gaming can add value to policymaking.

*Note to self: Must get involved in the editing of Wikipedia. E-democracy does NOT equal Direct Democracy.
