Continuing my current obsession with micro-participation, I ran a session on the subject at yesterday’s excellent ShropCamp.
Basically I chatted through what micro-participation is and what it tries to achieve, where it came from etc. Then I gave some examples of it in action, and after that asked for some ideas and thoughts from the floor.
Here are the slides:
I’m really taken with this idea, as you can probably tell, and am starting up a project space at microparticipation.com to explore it more fully.
We’re going to be developing the site to be a resource in terms of examples and case studies in micro-participation, discussions about the potential and the issues involved, but also try and get people’s ideas for both online and offline micro-participation.
I’d also really like to find a way of making some of those things happen, by finding organisations to work with.
So if you’re interested in taking this forward, do sign up for updates from the new site!
