A 5-minute talk I gave at the first Prague Ignite event. It presents a concept for a new type of a political party built on the network principles. I'd excited to hear from anyone in the similar thought realm! @danfranc
3.1 centralized3.2 vertical 3.3 authoritative3.4 authoritarian3.5 we VS the people3.6 not trusted3.7 not transparent
4.1 Notion of a potential for a newtorked political power for networked people on networked principles4.2 different type of people ("networked people") need different type of politics and politicians (2.0)
5.1 their own individual parties, more than views5.2 choice5.3 mobility5.4 co-creation
6.1 different relationship creatin6.2 they exist in a network and work in a networked way, Different from teamwork! 6.3 more egoistic, active, powerful
8.1 politician no longer the deity to who all look up8.2 but a network manager who oversees the net and generates action from it8.3 the political secretariats and infrastructure are the political sysadmins8.4 so what is the politician actually doing?
9.1.1 nodes9.1.2 node membership9.1.3 node connections9.1.4 network stimulation9.1.5 real life action
10.1 Party 2.0 must be creating nodes containing elements of compatibility with its portfolio10.2 the nodes can be loosely defined in terms of ideology. Themselves hthey are NOT yet the party!10.3 ANYTHING: people, petitions, events, discussions, causes, actions, club10.4 those nodes can be anywhere: facebook, web, blogs, etc.
11.1 People can relate to the nodes in many ways: become members, fans, interact with the content, etc. Be active!!!11.2 But in quantity lies the power: none says those nodes have all to be supersuccessful11.3 also, anyone can create them
14.1 PERSONALIZED CONTENT SEARCH, DISCOVERY AND RECOMMENDATION party as the portal helps discover new nodes, new activities and create membership to the node14.2 PEOPLE SEARCH and networking14.3 the RELEVANCY ENGINE - "page rank" replaced by "ideology rank" - i.e., a defined portfolio
15.1 Network admins know where there are CLUSTERS of activities, people or content, also, power users15.2 They know which clusters are further or NEARER to the desired "ideology”15.3 to those clusters they can position MESSAGES and for actions
17.1 The network must have effect to REAL life17.2 Ideally many of the nodes themselves would be ACTIVE in RL17.3 it can equip the politrepresentatives with credit
