All very well David, but can I ask:
(i) was the e-democracy conference just about the converted preaching to themselves? (Not that that's always necessarily a bad thing);
(ii) why is anyone still using the prefix 'e-' for anything except possibly e-electronics (the invention of which will confirm the folly of the affectation)?
and (iii) there's a separate discussion been going on for a while now about a new form of local democracy - engaged democracy - implicit in the white paper and the community engagement movement... where are the connections? I don't see them. (Maybe we got a job to do there).

Kevin ... yes, definitely a job to be done on making connections between local governance/community enagagement interests and e-democracy enthusiasts. But how? Start with one of the other? Another event? Get a mixed group together?
