Using an online tool to make decisions in Auroville
A quick Google search for "community decision-making online" brought up Loomio. I think the Auroville community can learn from this tool whether or not we use it in any significant way. There will be aspects that people like about it and aspects that people don't like about it. We can try discussing those here.
What are the limitations of making decisions online using such a tool as this? And what are the limitations of making decisions in large meetings? Which sort of decisions would be better suited to one method versus the other?

Start a bicycle caravan transport in the evenings within AV that provides safe travel option to residents and is simple to implement. Closed Sat 18 Oct 2014 1:11AM
What I propose is a bicycle caravan mode of evening transport for Auroville residents which allows a resident to join in and travel in a caravan fashion to myriad destinations within AV during evenings. Especially during guest season, this allows for persons to not get lost in Auroville and yet go in a group format to various evening events/restaurants of AV. This allows for reduce use of Taxis and other polluting mode of transport. Also allows for a safer mode of transport for ladies.
This provides safety in numbers. A few predefined caravan movement route is mapped out within AV bicycles paths that cover bulk of the residential and commercial/social venues of AV. Every evening, on given fixed known intervals, a bicycle caravan is started from one end of Auroville and it snakes across to other end and back. This caravan is led by security service personnel on bicycles, one in front and one at back. Residents can join it close to where they reside and get off where they need to go. On a later evening caravan trip, the resident can return from the destination by joining the caravan and getting off at her residence.
