Paradigm Shift: From Trickle Down to Grassroots Up

Open Data... community-sourced policy... engagement skills-building and tech/digital access to facilitate?

Earlier today I was at Cisco with Toronto Youth Cabinet's Chloe-Marie Brown discussing all of this.  The day before, it was Mark Stern at CSI.

It's the opposite of trickle down - it's growth from the grassroots up.

And it's coming sooner than you'd think.

Oh, and I'm crediting the term and concept behind The Social Gardener to Jennifer Li.
