Over the last two days, 1book140, The Atlantic's Twitter book club, has been trying out the WeDo system to test a possible way for us to choose books. WeDo is an experimental Twitter nominations and voting system by @hqz, @andresmh, and other researchers at MIT and Microsoft Research. I wanted to learn more about how it worked -- BEFORE we actually relied on it for a vote. :-)
The vote was held at: http://wedo.csail.mit.edu/publicmissions/4
To bookies, Thank you SO MUCH for trying it out with me -- our test revealed some glitches and some needs before we would ever use it for our real votes. Tomorrow, I'll post nominations on The Atlantic in the usual way (and include all of the tweets from today in the list).
I'm also planning to ask further about what other people think about trying out new ways to vote.
