Description:

The Internet can serve as a communal gathering place, where like-minded community members can come together to discuss various pressing issues, share documents, take polls, and engage in the decision-making process as well. A recent project, GroupSpace, started at Stanford University as part of a research partnership with a local community organization, allows groups of individuals to do all of the above. As their mission statement suggests, the creation of the program is “to support the type of deliberation critical to the functioning of smaller, informal organizations in civil society”. It should be noted that this version of GroupSpace is a beta version.
