開放蚊子館

開放民進黨的 http://opendpp.tw/vote/ 做了不錯的嘗試,只是一萬票的門檻有點高,不知是太看得起自己、還是對於婉君的期待很高?

綠黨呢?這一兩年因為美國白宮的 We THe People 有開放原始碼,也剛好是 Drupal-baesd,所以我跟一些人都有提到,是否要仿效美國來試試。當時的構想是開放提案、連署,成案後,綠黨將代為向政府提出倡議。只是當時想到綠黨人微言輕,連署門檻可能要設定在100人才比較實際,且綠黨當時沒有任何的民意代表可以派上用場/戰場,綠黨向政府倡議的動作應該起不了什麼效果。因此,也就是嘴上空談,無實際行動。

既然講到白宮,那就來看看他們的現況(2014)吧:
網路蚊子館:How the White House's We the People E-Petition Site Became a Virtual Ghost-Town

Only 85 petitions were created at We The People in April. None of them came anywhere close to the 100,000 signature threshold required for a government response. Half of the petitions had fewer than 500 signatures, and 85% of them had 2,000 or fewer signatures. Even though the site is explicitly set up to let people communicate demands to the Obama Administration, 40% of the petitions were clearly outside the scope of presidential power. The three biggest petitions called on the White House to overturn the FDA restrictions on e-cigarettes, designate Russia as a State Sponsor of terrorism, and maintain net neutrality. They’ve all vanished by now – any petition that doesn’t reach the 100,000 signature threshold within a month is removed from the site.
