Hello everyone,

You might be interested to note that the work Wikimedia UK has been doing with Demos to try and crowdsource a submission to the Speaker's Commission on Digital Democracy has completed its first phase, resulting in a submission on the theme of digital scrutiny. It can be seen on the Parliament website here (PDF link) http://www.parliament.uk/documents/speaker/digital-democracy/A_Wiki-sourced_submission_on_digital_scrutiny_to_the_Speakers_Commission_on_Digital_Democracy%20.pdf 

We are currently developing work towards the second theme, which is participation. More information will follow on this when the page is online.

Thanks and regards,


Stevie Benton
