That is to say something that is best for the citizens to do like independent journalistic fact-checking. Maybe the government should not do that. If the government does that, we risk becoming a kind of state monopoly on truth which is a very bad idea, but for the government to speak out in a collaborative meeting that maybe it is better for the citizens to do that, we do not need all the journalism practitioners in the same room. We just need someone that can take this idea back to their community and start a crowdfunding or crowdsourcing event. So, I do not think this is about getting everybody in the same room, but it is about getting the entire record radically transparent so people late to the party can nevertheless resume the context on top of which their contributions can be made visible.
