Forum Post: Conglomerate Website Component - FreeInfo

Posted 1 year ago on Jan. 6, 2013, 2:08 a.m. EST by Kavatz (464) from Edmonton, AB
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

This is a component of the website intended to provide abundant information resources for a few specific topics relevant to the conglomerate's pursuits:

  • politics, government, history

  • law, self-litigation, history

  • business start-up, market research, economics

  • education, current events

Included is a forum for each of the FreeInfo resource topics listed above. Forum posts can be converted to SME references or Watchdog submissions, depending on user permissions.

This list could likely expand though these resources should be developed first. There is no point in reinventing Wikipedia. Much of the content will be developed by members as a side-effect of their interaction with the site (Directory/Marketplace, Watchdog, SME). The rest will be developed over time when feasible to allocate resources to it.

Marketplace/TheMall (Referenced http://occupywallst.org/forum/conglomerate-website-component-marketplace/ )

  • status of subsidiaries (responsible or not)

  • news, history, legal issues

Expect extensive info and opinions on high-profile individuals, specifically politicians, corporations, agencies, CEOs, the 1%, as well as subsidiaries.

Can you include user-generated polling, so that #ows members can be nominated for people's congress, and voting on their nominations can be happening in real time?

A module is to be planned for citizen-government interaction, but that's really for Departmental Governance (DG), which is just my preference for a political future. I don't really think we will go that way for sure, nor will I be offended if people decide not to.

I've never planned to use a "people's congress" though the DG decision-making process (laws, legislation, amendments, etc.) is highly influenced by engaged citizens.

If the conglomerate and consumers (the 99%) demand what you recommend for the web/mobile apps, it should be included.

Sounds like you've got the finger on the pulse.

I would love to see a people's congress fronting up to the "hill" and challenging the do-nothing congress for a reality check. Those pricks are dragging the chain, lining their purses, and screwing the people.
