Enabling peer review of expert testimony within government proceedings
Having developed Metavid.org, a site that archives video footage of the U.S. Congressional proceedings, we build upon the platform to enable peer review of expert testimony within government proceedings. By extending Metavid coverage to the bimonthly meetings of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology and leveraging open source software technologies for peer production, we demonstrate the potential for expert peers to vet or dispute technological and scientific information provided to government by offering citations and commentary in a web-based, collaborative environment. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.5.3 [Information Interfaces and Presentation]: Group and Organization Interfaces - asynchronous interaction, collaborative computing, computer-supported cooperative work, web-based interaction. Keywords archive, Congress, video, Open Source Software, wiki, social web, Web 2.0, MediaWiki, Ogg Theora, online deliberation
