There’s 3 ideas I really like that seem to do poorly alone, that I’d like to merge into the equivalent of a cyber mall. I made a basic mockup and posted it at Mockup.Lawgen.Org if anyone’s curious.
The first part I could find using media wiki, but I don’t know if I could modify code from them to work for the other parts effectively, because they’re probably just too different.
The whole thing’s built on the equivalent of a Wikipedia for solutions to problems. -Virtually all problems, from academia to activism, or languages, or areas.
But because groups sometimes need to vote on things, it would also have peer-governance features
And because it’s intended to spread itself virally by being helpful to people it should also have a time bank, and offer space in accounts to say what items or services people have or want, and if there’s anything they’d be willing to trade for, (like time credits).
It’s a weird idea that incorporates a lot of interesting challenges. Because people are gonna fight over everything constantly it also needs 2 communication tools. First people can add “layers” to posts, so for example ‘biologists’ and other experts can discuss matters and collaborate in and out of their fields without making the main page/post impossible to understand. (They keep their professional lingo to their own layers)
The second feature is the ability to drop hypertext icons into posts, next to any word you want. So people can expose myths, link to important information, and debate. The debate layout lets people rate individual arguments so people can see what concerns really matter to others, making it easier to synthesize ideas or compromise intelligently.
Can you see why I have no clue what languages to use? I want it to be an open source wiki, and we might use blockchain technology to secure the time credits.
What programming languages would you recommend? And do you know of any groups/foundations that might be interested in offering support?
