In order to coordinate the actions in support of the goals of the standardization effort, the forming of an official subsidiary
project of Metagovernment was proposed.
The mission of the Metagovernment project is to support the development and use of Internet tools which enable the members
of any community to fully participate in the governance of that community. We are a global group of people working on various
projects which further this goal. We expect governance software to be adopted first in small communities, and then to spread
outward with the potential to gradually replace many institutions of representative democracy with a new kind of social organization
called collaborative governance. We conceive a world where every person, without exception, is able to substantively participate
in any governance structure in which they have an interest. We envision governance which is not only more open, free, and
democratic; but also which is more effective and less fallible than pre-Internet forms of governance. See also http://www.metagovernment.org/wiki/Main_Page
