Abstract
This is an exciting opportunity to develop technology which enables effective governance in disrupted societies. The key concepts described are to 1) enable bi-directional communications between a local populace and its leaders and 2) use these communications to monitor social networks. We will address technological challenges, motivating the citizenry, and motivating the emergent government. The Phase I goal is to develop a situation independent, culture-general communications design. Ultimately, this approach will lead to more rapid incorporation of effective civil authority and faster transition of control from U.S. or international organizations to local governments.
