Skuggathing (Shadow Parliament)

Skuggathing or Shadow Parliament is a social networking portal based on Open Active Democracy a system which in turn is a merger between: NationBuilder and Open Direct Democracy.

Bills and discussions are collected from Alþingi (Parliament) and added onto the web

Everyone can participate in the discussions, vote for or against arguments and add their own”bills” to the Skuggathing (Shadow Parliament).

In a TV interview the authors said that the Skuggathing (Shadow Parliament) portal came out of frustration with the lack of opurtunity ordinary people had to participate in the discussions after the Crash, in a way other social networking portals did not provide.

+ Is something good coming out of the Crash?
