Imagine you have 1000 people in a hall and want them to discuss a topic. There are basically three ways to do that:

  1. Let only one person talk at a time. Very inefficient, but at least you can record a result.
  2. Let everybody talk in groups of say 2-5. You get high redundancy and NO result.
  3. Divide the topic into subtopics and assign the people. You will suffer from either #1 or #2. Or both.

This little experiment tries to create a tool that allows for a much higher number of persons, say a whole nation, to

  1. discuss a topic (nearly) at the same time
  2. (nearly) avoid redundancy
  3. document the whole discussion in a structured way
  4. get a result they voted for
  5. while the whole process is peer-moderated.

However, these benefits come at a price. People will have to learn how to discuss in a VERY structured way. Think: Two persons have a discussion in an interview style. One person asks the questions, the other answers them. In the interview you can use questions and answers from discussions of other people.
