A beautiful piece of swiss semi-direct democracy…

1) A group of people wants to change the law and gather enough signature (>100’000) to go into votation process.
2) The government disagree with this new proposal and propose an alternative.

As a citizen, I need to answer to the two questions: “Do I accept Proposal 1 ?”, “Do I accept Proposal 2 ?” and since they are exclusive, can not be applied at the same time, I need to answer to the question which one I prefer if both proposal pass.
Note that to pass a proposal (ie. an “initiative”) needs to be accepted by a majority of people, and a mojority of “cantons”…

Easy uh ?

Stamm@Cisco yesterday

Second W2 stamm was held yesterday at Cisco. I am glad it went fairly well with good presentations and some very interesting networking. There was even a quick Telepresence demo at the end but first Joanna, my colleague, introduced Cisco’s involvement into Second Life. By the way here are the SLurl to Cisco’s island and a link to the official Cisco’s Virtual World blog which also talk about Second Life of course.

In the second presentation, Stephane Cheikh talked about his experience at SITA on how to implement a customized corporate RSS reader with live example and he shared his lessons learned.

Third presentation was done by Matthias Lüfkens who introduced the World Economic Forum on Facebook.

Photos and videos will be published soon. Next stamm is in Zürich at Cablecom Headquarters. Programm is known you just need to subscribe to join the party!
