TAGDit, a platform for Delegative Democracy
Our research on proxy voting as a tool for deep democracy has resulted in the development of TAGDit. This Software as a Service solution enables organizations to utilize the collective intelligence of their members by implementing proxy voting.
The concept for a team internet search engine has its origins in concerns about lack of transparency in the way contracts are awarded at Canadian Crown Corporations. This led us to wonder if there was a better, more transparent way to operate an organization, one that tapped into the collective intelligence of the members
TAGDIT is a new kind of internet browser called a Team Internet Search engine. It enables people and teams working in an organization to build a shared knowledge base of search queries and web pages that can benefit all in the organization. Social and proxy voting algorithms create a ranking process to filter through high quality information.

The notion of proxy voting is explored – the idea that democratic voters ought to have the right to delegate their votes to others (and to revoke said delegations), as they see fit.
