I'm writing this blog on the day of Thailand 2007 General election. There is no conclusion about the next prime minister yet but I have some idea worth for blogging.
Note: This is first and rough draft idea. Need a lot of iteration. Comments are very welcome.
Project Title: Long Tail Election Reporting System
There is no sophisticated online election reporting system available. The primary source for election result is still TV and reported by centralized government body or media empire.
This project proposes an election reporting system which:
- gather data by massive volunteers, "wisdom of the crowds" aka "long tail" method via proper communication channels
- represent the election result in online visualized format, which enables more accessibility, comparability and accountability
- guarantee acceptable level of accuracy
- highly customizable for various kinds of election, can be easily reuse in different environment
Estimate timeframe: [highly speculated] Thailand General Election in 2009
Estimate cost: N/A
