Through the years I have been asked to help in many different ways. And new ones I expect to appear in the future. I do expect to be paid for my work (duh! :-O ), but it is always ok to schedule a free 10 minutes chat on Skype (username: pietrosperoni) to see if I can help you.
In the past I have:
- Gave presentations, or keynotes about e-Democracy, and about the tools out there;
- Gave lessons on the topic of eDemocracy or Artificial Chemistries.
- Co-wrote a book about e-Democracy;
- Develop a mathematically fair algorithm for a consultation for the Public Administration;
- Managed election for a Facebook group to let the participants elect a new moderator in a fair way;
- Supervised thesis on e-Democracy
- Guide people into using some of the tools I developed (The voting triangle, Vilfredo, Chemical Organisation Theory, …)
- Developed a mathematically fair algorithm for Participatory Budgeting;
- (and much more 🙂 ) …
I like new challenges, as I like mathematical difficulties that take me out of my comfort zone. I do not believe there is a single solution, a single democratic system, that fits every society. Each society have different requirements, depending what is the size, the culture, the pre-existing rules we need to conform to, and so on. So I try to develop a different algorithm that satisfy all the existing requirements, while still being mathematically fair. To the point that each participant feels even when they did not agree with the result, it was taken in a fair way.
