The only way our team believes that there will be any political consideration given to the adjustment of the democratic process, is to prove the validity of the modified organization structure in a closed system experimental test. TAGDit is envisioned to be this: a test case for an enhanced democracy.
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 enableing this to contribute to decisions. That’s when we came across Proxy Voting: the ability for one person to transfer their vote to another trusted person. In pursuing the idea of proxy voting to create more transparency in how tax dollars are spent, we evolved TAGDit, a team internet search engine.
