  1. 1. We decide. Wedecide.
    • We organize network-based collective decisions, i.e. decisions in which • you always decide whether to have direct influence (on the cost of forming an own opinion and being responsible) or if you want to be represented, and • all civil society actors may help you with representation and decision ease], • because we believe that good and legitimate decisions are necessary to have a good life and to save the world.
    • With initial clients, we build demonstration cases and grow the project to a worldwide social movement.
    • We develop and search first projects. Will YOU help us?
  2. 2. Collective decisions: Important yet nontrivial
    Good and legitimate collective decisions are necessary • Extreme opposite: Failed states. • Institutional quality predicts systemic success.
    Benevolent dictators do not work • Rich societies are too complex.
    Grass-roots decisions do not work • Too much effort to decide everything.
    Representative decisions cease to work • Depend on clear-cut group identifications. • Ceasing in Western societies. • Never-existing outside.
  3. 3. Solution: The Wedecide model
    Meta-decision freedom • Everyone decides which decisions to decide, which to be represented
    Actor-openness • Trust in every actor can be used for representation or decision ease
    Compromise and more • Many options for decisions • Both online/offline access • Many systemic options
    Trust deposit • Trust continuously stored, as base for representation and evaluation a.k.a. ‘Civil-society-based collective decision making’
  4. 4. Product
    Product • Offering decision-making for a fixed period • Hosting of evaluations, trust, counting process • Secure backup storage • Help with constitutional adjustments

  6. 6. Competition and market strategy
    First-mover • Developer and first provider.
    Imitation? • Threat: Idea and technological development can be copied
    Counter-imitation strategy via network effects and public governance: Network effects • Especially for political actors. Legitimacy • Necessary for group motivation. • For-profit enterprises (e.g. FB) face conflicting goals.
    Going public • The enterprise will be turned into a public enterprise governed by elected board members in a fixed schedule.
