Davies and Mike D. Mintz, 2009. &quot;Design Features for the Social Web: The Architecture of Deme&quot; [pdf], in Luis Olsina, Oscar Pastor, Daniel Schwabe, Gustavo Rossi, and Marco Winckler (Editors), Proceedings of the 8th International Workshop on Web-Oriented Software Technologies (IWWOST 2009) </li></ul>
  4. 4. Summary of Deme ’s features
  5. 5. Deme item type hierarchy (simplified)
  6. 6. Deme item type hierarchy (detail, partial view)
  7. 7. Comparison of Deme with other web technologies
  8. 8. Our current task: Provide software to support public consultation/deliberation (mostly asynchronous) via the Web
  9. 9. Space of Conflict in Collaboration deliberation debate high negotiation cooperation low belief conflict high low goal conflict
