E-Democracy Brunch in San Jose

DoWire logo.

Steven Clift of E-Democracy.org and DoWire.org is organizing an informal gathering on Friday, November 17th in the San Jose, CA area to talk about issues relating to e-democracy. He has a sign-up page on his wiki and you can find more information about the gathering on his blog. Steven has been involved with the e-democracy movement since the dawn of the internet and became a central figure with the establishment of the DO-WIRE mailing list, the seed that grew into his current online endeavors, in 1998. Both his websites are remarkable sources for e-democracy news & information, and well worth a visit.

  1. I really agree with your thoughts on these interview shows. I have a question for you or the general D&D community.

    I have been developing dialogue workshops and projects outside the American D&D environment and am trying to come up with a way to describe the different distinctions that there are in dialogue. I wondered whether the D&D community already had names for these distinctions.

    If dialogue is defined as "through meaning", then there are at least three distinctions that exist:

    Mentor-student: true dialogue (equal relationship where each gets something deep from each other but that something is not the same

    Compassionate dailogue – opening the heart of another

    Collaborative dialogue – where a group creates a sum greater than the wisdom of its parts

    Can you tell me if there is some professional way to describe these distinctions?
