Ask Idealware: Solutions for Tagging and Archiving a Discussion List | Full Circle Associates

Nancy White

The consensus of this group is they would like to do this via listserv. I really dislike listservs and would like to find a different option. Is there a blog/listserv hybrid solution, perhaps using rss or something like that? It was a great question so I happily shot off an answer in email. Anyway, here is the piece!

What we can learn from disrupted meetings?

Chris Corrigan

Over the past few days an amazing conversation has unfolded on the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation listserv about what these events mean for deliberative democracy. This tactic is discouraging but predictable. &# Town Hall&# meetings are not usually conducive to democratic deliberation, and they are never about dialogue.

In a follow-up post on the actKM listserve, Brad Hinton makes the excellent point that cumbers can mean different things in different context, which is why qualitative input is so important alongside the numbers to help interpret them correctly.
