Darren commented on Celebrating Elections --> UPDATED

This is fantastic! I'd love to see this as an annual celebration of neighborhood, taking place even when there is no election being held. In the US we have a holiday right around election time, Veteran's Day. How great would it be if every year, people took a day off to celebrate their communities, and then every other year took ownership by voting?!

Most community events in the US are usually driving affairs, I live in California, the state fair is about 2 hours away, by car. Even the county fair is about 45 mins away by car. The most accessible public space for most people is a school, which is usually walkable, unless people live in a very rural area.

I've been thinking of an idea like this as well. Have you thought of specific mechanisms to accomplish this? I was thinking of a Wiki and/or a chatroom.

Dear Darren
It was a pleasure of reading your post.
I am Cheng Zhang, a master student from London School of Economics (LSE).

As I am writing a dissertation on OpenIDEO, can I send you a questionnaire for you to answer in about 10 days time?
I can see that you are an active participant, and I am really interested in finding out more about people like you.
If you do not have time it is totally understandable too! If you are interested, could you please send me an email to ? Or you can tell me your email here;).
Best regards and many thanks
Cheng Zhang
