Hi Steven,

I am at the beginning of an Interactive Digital Game Design Course in
Brisbane and I have commenced a project http://gamifydemocracy.com where I
aim to build an alliance to evolve democracy towards a bias of
compassionate responsible abundance and virtuous collaboration. I am
starting to wonder how to pitch the alliance to groups like Gov Hack, Gov
2.0, Open Gov etc. to incorporate their solutions into different layers of
Gamify Democracy. Perhaps if I share some insight about my plans so far you
will be interested in discussing this further.

So far I am aiming to get primary and secondary students to use a system of
colours, symbols and patterns that represent emotions, values, virtues and
beliefs. Then use this system to categorize all political content from
politicians, parties and the community (community participation using a
fractal pattern + personal profiles and a skills, values and competencies
matrix) to create the basis for quantifiable moral reputations in
governance. Then allocate that data into swipe and click applications for
the voting citizens to swipe Prefer, Indifferent, Do Not Prefer on a scale
of emotion importance and urgency in a format not unlike Tinder but more
detailed and for politics.

Furthermore I wish to virtualize the physical spaces of democracy, mainline
their timelines with augmented reality and virtual reality, create an
overlap between 3D games like ClassCraft and SecondLife by agreement or a
custom game I will be defining during my game design course. These games
and other games like arcade games and sudden life gaming will act as reward
layers for people participating virtuously in the boring part of the open
source data generation.

I also have identified a collection of ideas that could be combined to
create real time meaning translation between all languages simultaneously
like C3P0 in star wars by using hieroglyphs, sacred geometry, colour theory
and citizen science pattern recognition to build the data sets for the
language engine. There are several game patterns this could be incorporated
into such as slot machines for adults and pattern games for children. In
simple terms it is the key to world wide understanding and an ability for
people on all levels of all communities, in all cultures being able to
participate in issues of global significance.

Okay so that's a relative outline. Do you think this project is important
and urgent? From this information are you interested in helping to define a
pathway for collaboration or provide some guidelines, or suggest how I
should structure this information for a formal proposal, or to whom I
should deliver a formal proposal?

What else is possible from your perspective?

Thank you for your time.

Kind Regards,
