An existing platform (Kialo) for Asgardians to be able to decide collectively on critical issues ¶
Today I came across the Kialo platform. It allows for debate guided by reason; users can input their pros and cons for all to see and comment against. As such it could supplement the Asgardia Forum and speed up the process of decision-making by offering reasonable pros/cons for decisions we might make.
For example, the Universal Basic Income topic that is trending now as a top Asgardia blog already has a counterpart in Kialo: https://www.kialo.com/universal-basic-income-is-the-future-1634/1634.0=1634.1/=1634.1 . Check that link for a nice public example of what the platform can do.
Only downside at this time is that membership on a Kialo discussion cannot be restricted to just Asgardians. I signed up and tried creating a test team that would allow this in the future but that functionality isn't available yet.
Still I believe it might be a good platform to either adopt or seek to emulate for the purpose of speeding up collective decision-making within Asgardia. This is one of the things I am actively campaigning for on my blog posts.
