Discussion

Out of respect for people's time, this presentation is likely to be extremely short (a few words at most). The list archive has several months of discussion that amount to a longer presentation, which attendees can read on their own time. ~Michael Allantalk 14:22, 23 June 2011 (EDT)

As noted on the list, I suggest that discussion of crossforum and pollwiki should be more than a brief overview. That "several months of discussion" is very technical and somewhat difficult to follow. It would be extremely helpful to others to have some of the highlights presented in a summary format. [Ed]

The summary I will present (not to preclude others presenting their own) is as follows: ~Michael Allantalk 13:19, 24 June 2011 (EDT)

  • Crossforum Theatre - Crossforum Theatre sits at the front end of the Outcast voting network. It is a free floating, user interface (UI) layer onto the network. The network may have many such UI layers, each independent of the other. Each serves to glue the disparate components of the network together in terms of user operability, giving the whole the look and feel of a single "application".
  • Pollwikis   Pollwikis sit at the back end of the Outcast voting network. Pollwikis are shared databases. The network may have many such shared databases, but the pollwikis are the most indispensible. Together they serve to glue the disparate components of the network together in terms of data operability, giving the whole the functionality of a single "application".
  • Outcast   Outcast is a communication network for public voting. It enables people to vote together on common issues while remaining free as individuals to choose their own facilities and methods of voting. Some methods of voting depend on external facilities such as drafting or discussion, and Outcast extends freedom of choice to those as well.
