Obama campaign goes Web 2.0 on policy

Barack Obama's website has a policy page in which citizens follow this process:

  1. Weigh in with their own ideas, stories, messages, and video
  2. Collectively "define and refine the best ideas"
  3. Incorporate the best ideas into the campaign's policy
This process is touted as "open source policy development," but shares a lot with participatory frameworks such as future workshops. It'll be interesting to see if it takes off.
