Our organisation is happy to collaborate in this regard with any of the funded groups.

We received a lot of really interesting ideas in response to our request for project proposals, but due to the short lifespan of the Taskforce we had to narrow our focus to projects that can be completed quickly and will assist the Taskforce in addressing its terms of reference or providing a useful case study.

The Taskforce has therefore decided to commission another five “Round 3” projects in addition to those announced in Round 1 and Round 2:

Project 15: ALRC Family Violence Consultation Project: Headshift are working with the ALRC to help then run an online engagement pilot.

Project 16: OpinionWatch Analysis: Social Change Online will conduct “sentiment analysis” of the Taskforce submissions and feedback using NICTA’s OpinionWatch technology.

Project 17: Planning Alerts: OpenAustralia Foundation have been funded to continue development on their planningalerts.org.au website.

Project 18: Whole of Government Video Service Scoping Study: Vquence and Jimi Bostock are investigating options for a whole of Government video service.

Project 19: Online Engagement Review: Collabforge are reviewing the effectiveness of the online engagement tactics of the Taskforce.

You may also hear some more about these projects here on the blog or elsewhere, since several of the vendors have indicated that they want to reach out to the online community as they carry out their work.

It should cover all issues put before parliament, and reviewed. Broad opinions could be tabled as graphs, and the underlying context behind the opinion of the individual could be used to assess sociological trends. Anonymity, and IP logging, could reduce erronous data. Just a thought, how about poll (agree/disagree, short comment why) page here. It should cover all issues put before parliament, and reviewed.

Remember if you are successful in being selected to undertake a project by the Taskforce you will need to enter a contract with Microsoft (the source of the project fund).

Follow this link to the project fund page where we have made available a copy of the draft contract with Microsoft.

That would probably be done by updates to this blog post.
