Legal/Social Issues raised ==should young people be left alone without supervision even for a short time? ==should those suspected of crimes which don't threaten society be locked up before trial? ==is it enough to have one underage witness to start a criminal case? ==is it acceptable to influence the state and especially the prosecutor's office through the Internet? ==is the existing system for the protection of system adequate? ==is the current nature between the prosecutors office, the court, and the defense adequate? ==is the overall criminal situation in Novgorod too bad?

Hyperlocality matters Engagement with immediate local communities resonate better “ It can happen to anyone” Less political, more social Less attention of MSM to such problems Eventually, from local to national to global citizenship

Engagement with immediate local communities resonate better

“ It can happen to anyone”

Less political, more social

Less attention of MSM to such problems

Eventually, from local to national to global citizenship

Motivation: better incentives Need to better understand motivation A lot of such projects succeed because of people's self-branding aspirations, not money Many of them think traffic, not always $ Pay less, get more Project design should take note of that

Need to better understand motivation

A lot of such projects succeed because of people's self-branding aspirations, not money

Many of them think traffic, not always $

Pay less, get more

Project design should take note of that

10 small projects better than 1 big More microfinance More VC-like outlook Methodology: teach project management+expose to diverse case-studies Better community involvement, Digg (public evaluation/feedback) for projects That way, also less politicized

Work with existing communities LiveJournal is a social network with a blogging platform, not vice versa Stand-alone projects often fail as they can't compete Easier to channel existing comms than create new ones LJ Communities succeed as they have no owner—closest we get to “commons”

Break the isolation Diminish the power of opinion-makers More translations Better connections within the CIS blogosphere: conferences, events, joint projects Connect the segregated groups—common resources with discussions

Crowdsource activism Why do we talk about movements? “ YouTube” for activist badges? Widgets for LiveJournal—easier ways to innovate? Creating value from existing communities More educational resources that bloggers can cite (consumer rights, etc)‏ Bloggers understand the value of “embedding”/push for archives More ways to promote mash-up culture
