An Open Letter to the League of Women Voters

One of the discouraging things of the open source movement was that everyone just ran off doing whatever was interesting to them rather than trying to make a consensus decision about what steps should be taken first. Ironically, once one starts a project, the bug feature list stack ranks which glitches get priority of attention. I wish the League of Women Voters in the US would just stand up a recommendation engine (like digg.com or ideastorm.com), load it with the top 100 issues, and have debate based on the top ten national priority choices.
