From civicintelligence

This is a very good paper that points out some key issues when talking about civic intelligence. In order to truly promote civic intelligence, we need to be able to communicate problems, ideas and solutions. And that means not just the think tanks, politicians or even professors but ordinary people. A passage that I think makes a great point on this is, "Progress in deliberation makes little sense if citizens - ordinary and not-so-ordinary people - are not central players.... We need to consider a wide range of options to expand this work - and these ideas - within the citizenry."
