    1919In this gathering, we seek to collaboratively write an Internet Justice Bill of Rights. Modeled after our successful workshop at the US Social Forum, we
    20 will break the audience into groups of 4 - 5 people.  Each group will speak with one voice via a "scribe" who will be tasked with entering the group's
    21 proposed rights of the group into a web-based system. A dynamic, projected display of the current state of the Bill of Rights is visible to all.

    23 All ideas belong to the group: any group can edit any Right, whether they wrote the original version or not  All revisions of a given Right are stored, but only the most recent edit is projected to the group as a whole.  The group which creates a new version of a right automatically endorses that right, but otherwise holds no special connection to it.

    2727To keep the Bill of Rights to a manageable, concise size, only 10 rights can exist at a given time. If 10 rights already exist, the only way to add a new idea to the Bill is to edit an existing right, which requires engaging other groups in a dialog to ensure an adequate number of re-endorsements.
