Here is a bit of a "debate" from August 2018 Communications of the ACM (CACM) pitting a technology-focused approach and a human-centered approach to information and communication tech support for democracy reform. I'd love to know what you think! Please feel free to distribute if you think it's useful. [PS. The video is intended to supplement the article. It doesn't echo the article. And the production values could be better. :-) ]
Point: Foundations of E-Democracy, Ehud Shapiro


Counterpoint: E-Democracy Won’t Save Democracy. Democracy Will Save Democracy, Douglas Schuler
