This idea seems to be growing, and I thought it made sense to post this to NCDD, since “Dialogue and Deliberation” is the essence of this project – and it’s offered in a spirit intended to be consistent with many related projects, including Mark Gerzon’s new book, “The Reunited States of America: How We Can Bridge the Partisan Divide”


I’m building an online database on this now, mostly based on Wikipedia.  There are absolute floods of connections that grow straight out of this….


Thanks so much to NCDD for keeping the river flowing….
