Here's my first tentative outline of the Bloggers Parliament project, which I first proposed in my 'non-presidential manifesto' post (Blaugustine, Sept.14). It has also been posted in the WorldView section of Open Source Politics.
If anybody's interested in taking it seriously, why not post this on your own blogs so that a momentum is built up and, who knows, it may actually get somewhere.
I would suggest that the ideas be expressed in as few and as clear words as
I'm making a separate page on my site to start collecting ideas I come across (or think up) which really might be solutions to one or more of the problem in the categories listed below.

BLOGGERS' PARLIAMENT PROJECT
1. To collect the best ideas from the blogosphere which offer feasible solutions to current major problems in the world.
2. Each person who agrees to become a member of Bloggers' Parliament becomes a mini-collection center for those ideas (including their own) which they select as the most relevant and appropriate solutions to the problems in any or all the categories listed below. Obviously their choices would reflect the bloggers' own views.
3. After each member has collected a maximum of, say, five ideas per category, they are posted on their own blogs under a Bloggers' Parliament heading.
4. The entire blogging community (members and non-members of the Parliament) is then invited to vote for which of the solutions collected by all the MP's best fit the specific problems.
5. From the results of the voting, a short list is drawn up and a Solution Package is prepared.
6. The Bloggers' Parliament then presents the Solution Package to the world media, world leaders and/or anyone else who will listen and who may have the means and power to implement the ideas.
