Welcome to the Teledemocracy Action News +
Network --- TAN+N the website of the Global Democracy Movement. We are primarily
dedicated to the creative use of modern technologies (ICT) and face-to-face deliberative
techniques in all forms that directly empower citizens to have authentic input into
political systems at all levels of governance around the world.
TAN+N also covers other genuine
pro-democratic movements including those which promote direct democracy and those which
struggle to gain, retain or transform representative democracy in the face of
authoritarian or elitist power or from corrupting financial influences.
TAN+N is currently divided into 7 related websites:
main data base describing, rating and linking its major
projects and organizations (presently being updated and upgraded 2002)
||The Continuing Congress of International Direct Democracy: A continuing, informal network of individuals and organizations around the
world who meet periodically to discuss their progress and to develop collaborative
projects on global direct democracy.
||Books on the Future of Teledemocracy: Book reviews and links that are related to our key book ,
The Future of
||Current and Archived News on Teledemocracy: Selected news events on developments in the USA and globally that
are updated regularly. We also have a section of past news items that are archived
in the order of the year they appeared.
This is a prototype of a webzine that was produced in 1996 that includes news, feature
articles, interviews, etc. on subjects relevant to this website. It awaits a
new publisher, editor and staff to flourish in the future.
Links: including American Talk
Issues, Hazel Henderson's TAN+N
Homepage, Public Interest
Polling, and the Ecological and
Transformational Politics (ETP) section of the American Political Science Association.
||E-Voting: This is a new section that will confine itself to the rapidly expanding field
of electronic voting, or the E-Vote. Although there is a section in TAN+N2 on
"Voting from the Home" which has many examples of E-voting in it, this section
will be an update and improvement on that section.
