Some legal technologies were worked on and discussed at PoplusCon 2014, held 29-30 April 2014 in Santiago, Chile.
Poplus is a set of free and open “software components that help civil society groups and campaigners launch powerful websites – anywhere in the world.”
The legal technologies discussed and worked on at the event include:
- BillIt, a legislative document management system, developed by Ciudadano Inteligente
- SayIt, a transcript publication platform that uses Akoma Ntoso for structural metadata
In addition, a session was scheduled to be held at the conference on Participative Legislation: How to Crowdsource Law Drafting.
