"Dear Poforpeace, Do you have a link for ISO 26000?  I tried to download it from ISO.org, but it wants me to pay for it. In the meantime, for others, here is the Wikipedia description of ISO 26000: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_26000  "

Stephen Buckley replied to Occupy Cafe Stewards's discussion 11/28 Round 1: Jitendra Darling
"The "New England-style town meeting", widely recognized as a highly democratic form of decision-making, has a mechanism for balancing the competing desires for more Discussion ("process") vs. immediate Decision/vote…"

Stephen Buckley replied to Occupy Cafe Stewards's discussion General Call Harvest
"Raffi, Great note-taking!  Thank you very much. Here is the link to the relevant "Humankind" radio segment that I had mentioned hearing on NPR on Saturday.  Although the program summary is well-written (see below), the…"

Stephen Buckley replied to Ben Roberts's discussion 11/14: Aerin Dunford
"During today's call, Aerin indicated (and correct me if I am wrong) that the current system allows for undue influence by special interests, instead of the general interest. But she said she was "stumped" as what she (and…"

Stephen Buckley commented on Jitendra Darling's blog post Is all dissent created equal?
"If anyone can participate in a GA simply by showing up, then a well-organized minority (even if they are "anarchists") can thwart the will of the unorganized majority (who don't show up). Until #Occupy gets more organized about…"

Stephen Buckley replied to Ben Roberts's discussion Harvesting from the "What Core Conversations..." discussion in the group Harvesting from our Conversations
"Ben, I realize that you may not have the ability (technically-speaking) to moderate a discussion on this platform, so once a discussion-thread takes off, it can be difficult to keep people focused. And if that conversation is allowed…"

"Ben, Arrgh!  I just accidentally erased my message about not having to "reinvent the wheel" since many other online communities have been created using the Ning.com platform.  (Oh, well -- I'll try again.) Join GovLoop.com…"

Stephen Buckley replied to Occupy Cafe Stewards's discussion What core conversations would you like Occupy Cafe to host?
"Craig, You said: "My suspicion is that there is a deeply-felt, foundational public frustration that has perked to the surface in the election of President Obama...then in the Tea Party...and now in the Occupy movement." I agree that…"

Stephen Buckley replied to Occupy Cafe Stewards's discussion What core conversations would you like Occupy Cafe to host?
"Craig, Yes, I agree that "public frustration" is the primary element that fueled the rise of the "Occupy Wall Street" and the "Tea Party" movements.  Judging from a recent poll (wish I had the…"

Stephen Buckley commented on Stephen Buckley's group Occupy Cape Cod
"First I want to see how the larger community evolves.  That would have to be successful, first, before I could justify (to myself) the effort to grow a smaller version of that community. "What it's all about" needs to be made…"

Ben Roberts commented on Stephen Buckley's group Occupy Cape Cod
"Hey Stephen.  Our first member-generated group!  Nice. As a fellow New Englander, I felt that I could join this even though I'm a lot closer to NYC than the Cape!  And I didn't want you to be all alone here.  ;-)…"

What draws you to Occupy Cafe?
I have been an advocate of improved public participation, both as a government employee and, now, as a citizen for many years. In 1997, I set up the very first web-forum for the public to comment on a project proposed by U.S. government.

Occupy seems to exhibit peoples' frustration with the quality of democratic governance: they are tired of being ignored after being constantly told that they are being listened to. (Maybe "exasperation" is a better word.)

So I think that my experience in public engagement may be of some use here. More about me at http://www.twitter.com/transpartisan
