  4. 4. Tiago Peixoto@participatory | democracyspot.netCeDEM13(…) what primary movement or sector is mySociety part of?Or Avaaz? Or Kiva? Or Wikileaks? When I ask myself thesequestions, no obvious words or names race quickly or clearly tomind. There is a gap – or at best quite a bit of fuzziness – wherethe labels should go.This lack of good labels should surprise us because thesegroups definitely have aims and goals, normally explicit. Also,it is unusual because social and political movements tend to bequite good at developing names and sticking to them.Tom Steinberg,  April 2013
  5. 5. Tiago Peixoto@participatory | democracyspot.netCeDEM13Argumentum ad Novitatem(logical fallacy)
  6. 6. Tiago Peixoto@participatory | democracyspot.netCeDEM13And this worries me because consistent names help causesto persist over time. If the field of AIDS research had beenrenamed every 6 months, could it have lasted as it did? Flighty,narrowly used language confuses supporters, prevents focusand is generally the enemy of long term success.Tom Steinberg, April 2013

  21. 21. Tiago Peixoto@participatory | democracyspot.netCeDEM13Someone made a remark about the telegraph whichseems to me infinitely correct, and which brings out itsfull importance, namely that, at bottom, this inventionmight suffice to make possible the establishment ofdemocracy among a large population. Many respectablemen, including Jean-Jacques Rousseau, thought thatthe establishment of democracy was impossible amonglarge populations. How could such a people deliberate?Among the Ancients, all the citizens were assembled in asingle place; they communicated their will...Alexander Vandermonde, 1795. In: Mattelart 2003: 22
  22. 22. Tiago Peixoto@participatory | democracyspot.netCeDEM13The invention of the telegraph is a new factor thatRousseau did not include in his calculations. It canbe used to speak at great distances as fluently andas distinctly as in a room. There is no reason why itwould not be possible for all the citizens of France tocommunicate their will, within a rather short time,in such a way that this communication might beconsidered instantaneous.Alexander Vandermonde, 1795. In: Mattelart 2003: 22
