I’ve noticed in the last few meetings we haven’t had anyone from the Pirate Party in a while.
You are missing out quite a bit, as we managed to have a good venue thanks to Melbourne Business Centre.
This photo below is from our last meeting, which included those from the Fabians, Effective Altruism, Friends Institutes, Citizen Dividend Party, Open Government Forum, Melbourne Uni, Swinburne Uni and a few others.
Our last event was called “Starting a Democracy Forum / Think Tank - Is it needed? What’s required for one?” and it would have been good to have a few people who are more technically minded to attend as well.
I am also very curious to know if there is anyone in the Pirate Party who is in Melbourne who knows more about the opensource projects that Pirate Party has done for internal democracy. It could be a good topic to show to the public as well.
Our next event has not been scheduled, but it is likely to be set at late April. If you are interested, it would be good to know of your availability.
Oh and to help structure our next meeting topic, we are asking everyone a question. What are the two issues relating to democracy that needs public traction?
Any input will be appreciated.
