Thanks for your contributions to the discussion in the Digital Agenda Assembly, We had 1400 people submitting over 2000 contributions in 2 months. These contributions were reported in the Assembly and will be used for the Digital Agenda Mid Term Review. You can download all the content as Open Data here.
In 2 months, this platform has hosted more than 400 discussions with about 2000 comments.
This content is yours, and we're giving it back to you. Attached you will find all the discussions and comments and csv file - a machine readable and open standard format.
We just ask one thing: let us know what you do with it!
Following your requests, here's the list of "most interesting" people who won an entry for the Digital Agenda Assembly.
Some of the top contributors are not in this list, either because they were already invited, or because they are part of our staff.
Thanks again to all of you for contributing. It was a first try, this list probably misses some very good people, but still we found that the experiment was successful in driving the debate towards quality rather than quantity.
We here list Name, Surname, Country, Total votes
As anticipated in this blog, and explained in the "about" section, on 30th May we have made the final list of "most interesting" people, based on the number of "interesting" votes posted on their interventions.
The selected 40 have been already invited, and will be published here upon confirmation.
Thanks to all for your contributions. Please to continue posting and voting, as we feel this "reputation index" was a useful experiment and could be used also in the future.
By the way, do you think we should make the number of votes received public?
We just opened a new section where you can recommend videos to be shown during the Digital Agenda Assembly.
You can recommend a video, link it to a specific theme via the tag, and vote on the existing ones.
As usual, the most "interesting" videos will be shown during the Assembly between the sessions.
Our suggestion: decide on a theme that you think is important, search for it on Vimeo or Youtube or Dailymotion, and add it here.
The platform has now 614 members, and still one month to go for the Digital Agenda Assembly.
One of the purpose of the platform is to facilitate the self-selection of participants to the Assembly. Up to 40 places will be given to the people who receive most "interesting" votes to their contributions.
Based on our statistics, the most voted people to attend the assembly so far are, in decreasing order:
As you might have noticed, we have launched a new group on Digital Public Services and Sustainability. Just as for the one on Jobs and Skills, there will be no dedicated workshop at the Digital Agenda Assembly, but the results of the online discussion will be presented there, and will feed into the Mid-Term Review of the Digital Agenda.
One particular feature of this platform that you might have noticed is the "interesting" button. We allow people to vote on the contributions, not based on a general "approval or like" as in social networks, but on the fact that they see interesting material.
In fact, the goal of our online engagement is precisely to gather more and better ideas; and to involve more and better people.
We want people not just to state an opinion, but to bring interesting evidence and information.
Thanks for taking the time to join and visit the engagement platform.
This is the blog of the people who have designed and are running the DAA platform.
In this blog, we want to share our experience and discuss openly HOW to to better online engagement. Online engagement is an art, not a science. There is not "one way" to do it right, it's about continuous adjusting and tinkering. And there is so much knowledge out there: we want to gather the maximum level of feedback and intelligence.
