Crowdsourcing Social Networks to Inform Public Policy

Six Apart co-founder Anil Dash plans to reinvent the way the government listens to its citizens. We’re not talking about wiretapping. Rather, he wants to solicit expert opinions on scientific matters through a new social network belonging to the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Expert Labs. Dash pumped his idea Wednesday afternoon during a keynote address at the Web 2.0 conference in New York.
The blogging pioneer, whose company runs the, Movable Type, TypePad and Vox platforms, will direct the new organization, which will not be part of the government. Expert Labs will be funded by a $500,000 grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation as part of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, publisher of Science journal.
