CITIPOL is a venture combining social entrepreneurship and innovation in social scientific methodologies. It is about building a better national conversation that acknowledges the slacktivism of the masses. Ideally, we should answer people's social affordance for socio-civic participation the same way Facebook did for social connectivity.

How do we better harvest and leverage upon online voices to make a better gauge of the granularity of public sentiment? My intuition is that there is no statistically significant distinction between the texture of sentiment in the real world and sentiment online, when analyzed at the big data level of analysis. As we are today, political outcomes are setup systematically so when people select political representatives, they are saying they adopt the candidate's sociopolitical positions wholesale. Naturally, we should endeavor to create such a platform to better reflect the complexity and granularity of public sentiment.
