We have to make the UI more attractive & easy to use --> interesting layout on StackOverflow http://stackoverflow.net/
We 1st need to think about requirements, take a step back. But the tool should be finished in 5 months (full programme by September) so as to be up to speed for the drafting of the PP-Be manifesto for the 2014 elections
Democratie nu was part of a larger network http://e2d-international.org composed of organisations working on e-voting platforms, list http://e2d-international.org/wiki/index.php?title=E-Voting_Taskforce ; one of the most promising initiative https://agoravoting.com/ also lots of participation on http://www.opencongress.org/
The tool could serve to vote on texts but also give a 'droit de regard' on the actions of the elected officials. We should define the scope / set of use. We could separate "simple ideas" to actual law texts.
We need a version control ID for text. We could use git as a backup.
We need a clean architecture and/or pointers.
Action : make a spreadsheet with skills of each programers
Programming language : ruby or python.
For now restrict to public voting.
