Seattle City Council newbie Bruce Harrell is proposing the creation of a new city Web site designed to harness the power of the city’s ‘silent majority’:
With the available web technology, Councilmember Harrell will call for the implementation of an online gateway incorporated with the current Seattle.Gov website that allows every citizen the opportunity to provide their input in a structured, electronic polling format.
We like ourselves a poll here and there. And other greats of the Seattle Internet have put them to good use, too. So we’re not surprised the city wants in on this online democracy thing, too. This, of course, warrants a poll.
