Learnings from the Finnish 2011Parliamentary and 2012 Presidential elections• Voting is the most viral feature• According to traffic and feedback from the service has reached a minimum viable product (MVP) level.• Product can be cost effectively multiplied to other countries. There is no technical need for country partners, but they are necessary from the community perspective and local political knowledge.

  • 22. Crowdsourcing conditions Crowdsourcing principles also dictate that decisions should be made without influence; but, after much debate, we felt that, for now, it is more important to get people engaged with the political process in general. But we hope to add features in the future that will allow users to choose to approach it more from an issues, rather than a candidates, perspective.
