To remind us of our voting record:

Round 1:
- A (first past the post) - 31%
- B (alternative vote) - 46%
- C (closed list proportional representation) - 63%
- D (open list proportional representation) - 65%
- E (single transferable vote) - 43%
- F (alternative vote plus) - 33%

Round 2: All options do not allow there to be additional MPs
- A (first past the post) - 35%
- B (alternative vote plus 'recall') - 46%
- C (closed list PR, with limited size constituencies) - 43%
- D (open list PR, with limited size constituencies) - 57%
- E (single transferable vote, with limited size constituencies) - 31%
- F (AV plus, plus 'recall') - 56%
This is what we wrote on our introductory post-its:

Brenda: would Crowd Wise work for an event I want to run

Caroline: interested in enabling multi-location dialogues around sustainability (simultaneous)

Jennifer: interested in application of Crowd Wise to consensus-based decision-making events

Lisa: tool for community priorities, options, lever for change

Sarah: using the tool for collaboration in the arts

Dave: SD in general; Doing the Crowd Wise technique and then using it!

Yung Lie: participation facilitator; interested in crowd sourcing in urban development

Penny: interested in consensus techniques; like sharing new things with AMED members / friends.
Hi All,
Here are some notes I took on 23 September, on the Crowd wise method:

- Maximum diversity in participant's background in order to have the maximum variety in viewpoints and insights
- Voting encourages deepening discussion on stronger and weaker elements of the different options. To start voting instantly (1st round) may lead to questions of participants on the methodology. Facilitator should be keen to focus the debate on the content of the issues that are at stake.
- Voting strategies can work both in small and Large Groups. Influencing voting behaviour by anticipating on other's behaviour can be hampered by diminishing the options in the subsequent rounds of discussion and voting.
- Crowd Wise facilitates and encourages people exchanging viewdata and learning new elements, even if the participant's are not familiar with the subject.
- Participant's pick up the merits of one option. Eliminating options, "balloon debate"

I hope we can enhance the method further online and share experiences. I will certainly try to do a Crowd Wise in my work!
