Sounds interesting, from Ken Bausch, who has links to the International Society for the Systems Sciences:
“To honor the life of Hasan Ozbekhan, his role in establishing the Club of Rome, and his influence upon a generation of peace and sustainability professionals, the Institute for 21st Century Agoras is launching a Participatory Democracy Software program offering a sociotechnological tool that enables the practice of democracy.
“The Institute has received a gift of 1000 end-user licenses for CogniScope 1, the commercial grade collaborative planning software used worldwide by the CWA ltd consulting group. The use of this tool has been extensively documented in the recent book: How People Harness their Collective Wisdom and Power to Construct the Future (Information Age press) www.harnessingcollectivewisdom.com.
“The Participatory Democracy software along with a user manual can be downloaded from the Agora’s wiki, http://blogora.net by clicking the URLs on the blogora homepage. The Institute will support communities of practice through a users’ discussion page on this same site, and through various other methods.”
