Mark,
First, kudos on taking the initiative to put that together!!! and for making it so attractive.
My only concern is what if the choices provided are not a good match for comparison?
ex. 
Lower tax on Corporations vs Arrest those responsible for the crash
Can there be a button that lets you indicate that those two choices should not be paired in the future? and if a certain number of people vote that way it will no longer pair them?

On another note, perhaps more specificity in the Arresting choice. 
Arrest the individuals or penalize the companies that made fraudulent financial reports to the US government. Whether or not they caused a crash is subjective- but breaking the law by intentionally misreporting their finances is criminal and grounds for prosecution.

Hi General Assembly innovators,

I've been working on this participatory decision-making platform "allourideas" to get at a tangible way of real-time broad based democratic decision making. Please check it out here: http://www.allourideas.org/occupywallstreet?info=netwrkgrp . It asks you, to "Vote On Which Idea You Like Better". Feel free to click and vote.

In the next few days, I'm hoping we can gather volunteers to set up a "voting booth." Basically people take with tablets at Freedom Park to ask people to vote on the ideas that they'd like to see. If you're interested in helping, please let me know and I'll include you as part of the planning group.

This site is an initial attempt to see if the tool speaks to people. Digital Democracy has had some successes with this with our friends in Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco, and I'm hoping we can take the lessons and open source tools we've been working with around the world to continue to support the marginalized, even in this country - the 99%. I hope to hear from you. Thanks so much for your time.

Disclosure: All of the ideas on the allourideas site are currently seeded from demands heard at #OWS and from unscientific polls that I've seen covered in a variety of media sources. Fast company, CNN, WSJ & occupywallstreet forum, plus Matt Taibbi. The site is completely open and transparent. If you'd like to see an idea that's not currently in the system, please add it, this site is open source, transparent, participatory, and accountable to us all.

All the best,
Mark
