The Swiss political model is good for Singapore

Just go with "deliberative democracy" and forget about all the complexities involved in using Teledem. I'll still use it interchangeably with "delib democracy" since the latter employs all methods of delib including electronic....and also includes direct democratic practices, such as the BC Citizens Assemblies.
I truly wish you well with your work on the web with NPS in Singapore...and I urge you to continue to argue that the Swiss political model helps their economy and cullture and that it can't really do anything but improve Singapore's future.
If I remember correctly, you are basically running a web forum using the NPS as the focal point of the discussion, right? Perhaps we can link to your discussion in our new Journal of Public Deliberation. Can you tell me how many people are/have been involved in your forum. Also do you "facilitate" it in some way to get people to speak up and out?
