I was invited by Dr. Pravej’s reform forum to propose how internet and social media can contribute to the national reform afford, especially in providing collaborative platform between Civil Society, Netizens and the Government.
After some data on internet/social media usages in Thailand and how social media is reducing transaction for collective action significantly. My basic strategy consists of..
(1) Government should open up its data similar to the US’ Open Government Initiative (such as data.gov, etc..)
(2) Policy crowdsourcing platform similar to ideas.in.th or ilaw.or.th
(3) Online platform for volunteer & giving matching similar to globalgiving.com, sasix as well as kiva.org
