Group Notes


This page is for everyone. Collaborative notes: yeehaw!


Saturday Morning





General Notes (latest to oldest):


Act II, Afternoon:

(Bob, the script author's disclaimer: scripts were meant to stimulate discussion as opposed to reflect reality accurately)

we need a link to the mind map images from the acted scenes here


Scene II:

Corporation having an identity in a social network, as an 'actor', with the ability to name 'agents' to participate for them in community environments.

Name?: There are a number of use cases embodied in that script.


Scene I:

Baseline info regarding legislative realities:

  • Legislators' staff struggle to do their jobs in terms of processing citizen input and finding information relative to a bill or issue.
    • Greg: Lobbyists basically do the staffers' jobs for them and do the research, write the bill, and give it to the staffer who gives it to the legislator who bring it to the floor.
  • Kathy: After a bill is passed there is a regulatory process that follows to implement the legislation. That is part of hte budgetary process.


Mark Strama: Campaign finance is part of every issue, though it's not reported that way by the media.


Act I, Morning:


Some key ideas:


  • dialogue
  • meaning-making
  • tracking funding sources/campaign finance/follow the money
  • baseline: (what is the baseline for the transparent federal budget currently?)
  • annotation
  • problem definition

Hunter: perhaps not a Transparent budget, but an Illuminated budget to help organize the design questions which involve getting collaboration from the people who will put annoation in.


Josh: Engineers want the problem to solve, and they're frustrated right now because we don't have one yet. It's not a data problem. We need to get ideas up on the web in an organized way.


We need to remember that not all of our audience is familiar with web tools. We need to define terms and teach people.


Meaning Making: previous tool
