How could the internet become an effective tool for change?

This is a brainstorm for a discussion and community management platform to solve complex and international problems.

I think our world needs an online governance platform. A platform which allows people to facilitate, discuss, mediate, structure, build up and understand issues, solutions and knowledge.

A collaborative platform where everyone could work on policy and debate and make things happen. A project development software that allows big groups of people to work together.

This is a huge research and brainstorm. The  pieces of the puzzle are there yet it is very  complex so it will take time to plan and progam a usable and enjoyable interface.

The mockup I currently have already shows has already a lot of possibilities. The application of the website could be all areas: it could serve personal, community, political, corporate and organisational, NGO and non-profit organisations and issues.

Projects/questions/problems could be developed that arrive from a community-based website comparable to, yet more complex than Quora. Or who knows – it might be something Quora evolves into. I’m developing a workflow which could serve as an example. Please let me know if you’d like to join the brainstorm.

I would like to support any genuine similar initiative in it’s development.
