Re: <nettime> Mexico City is crowdsourcing its new constitution


Dear Nettimers,

I find it alarming that Change.org is starting to be used for official
votes. Change.org received the Big Brother Award 2016 in Germany
“because it uses personally identifiable information of people
who signed petitions for the company’s own business purposes in
varied and non-transparent ways.” For details, please read the full
laudation: https://bigbrotherawards.de/en/2016/economy-changeorg

Cheers,
Chris
