There was a lone speaker for the public input segment at last night's regular DNV council meeting. Mark Latham is a semi-retired economist working on voter reform with his main focus on improving voter information systems. He's developed a system called Votermedia which lets voters allocate funding to competing media (mainly blogs). He announced they will sponsor Votermedia in 5 cities, including North Vancouver. They've been been testing it at UBC's student union for 5 years now, with promising results -- see the videos at votermedia.org.
