Hey people! Here's a draft of the blurb I'm submitting for the App Store, lmk what you think:

LIQUID Private Beta

Reclaim your voice in government. Hold politicians accountable. Eliminate corruption.

HOW IT WORKS:

  1. Vote directly on San Francisco legislation.
  2. Delegate your representation to real people you know.
  3. Invite your friends to increase your voting power.

POWERED BY Verified Voter Registration.
AUDIT YOUR VOTE, anytime.

Heads up, I’m renaming this room and the accompanying repo from org to general. No action needed on your part, just a PSA

Finnaly I was able to get some free time to start coding the Face Democracy, please, if anyone wants to help feel free to message me. I am really excited to turn this idea into something tangible and a prototype would be the first step. David, thanks for the help in maturing the idea.
Can we trust him?
David Ernst
@dsernst
Exciting about getting some good work in on your project. Always feels good
Yeah I saw the Zuckerberg post and had mixed feelings. It's great that he's talking about taking a more active involvement, god knows he has more resources and reach than almost anyone... but like maybe you're alluding to, he's certainly had his share of controversies.

Hey people, I'm really impressed by GitLab Inc's open-source contribution model. Interested to hear if anyone has any experience or thoughts about it.
Pretty awesome that they've been able to facilitate 1000 open-source contributions, while still building a reliable, open-source, and free product for so many years
and still able to employ over 100 talented people: https://about.gitlab.com/team/

Hi-
I'm a research assistant for the Democracy Defense Fund, working on sourcing startups and nonprofits for small grants. Do any of you know of funding-constrained projects working to push liquid democracy in the US? I think we're stuck with grantmaking to American entities at the moment, but good projects abroad are worth mentioning too.
Thanks
David Ernst
@dsernst
Hi Connor, thanks for posting
Yes, I have lots of details for you, will follow up 1-on-1
FYI channel— new blog post: "How to move past a two-party system" https://blog.liquid.vote/2017/03/06/how-to-move-past-two-parties/

@all: Big news! An initial version of the Liquid app (native iOS) is now ready!
Still a lot more polish work necessary before going for a wide release, but if your interested in trying out this first functional version, I’d love to get it into your hands and hear any suggestions or criticisms that come up for you :smile:

I wonder who are the target customers of Liquid Democracy.
David Ernst
@dsernst
Yeah so I think any group with a formal democratic structure could benefit from liquid democracy. As an upgrade for their existing direct or electoral systems
Our focus for this project is on upgrading our public legislatures... in particular the US Congress
But we have a 95% ready to launch version for the City of San Francisco board of supervisors

Hey so there's a new Liquid slack that's starting to gain some good steam instead of this Gitter chatroom
Easier to form channels, have 1-on-1 conversations, and maybe a little bit better UI?

I'd love to join, but dat slack fatigue. I sort of can't handle more slack teams
David Ernst
@dsernst
Yeah, I know the feeling
Guido Vilariño
@gvilarino
Do you plan on deprecating this medium?
David Ernst
@dsernst
Yes, it hasn't been used for a while anyway
Guido Vilariño
@gvilarino
