March 25, 2010 | Wall Street Journal | Jennifer
Valentino-DeVries. The town partnered with Stanford University’s
Persuasive Technology Lab & software company Spigit to create Manor
Labs, a site that uses games and rewards to spur residents to
participate in improving govt. People who sign up for Manor Labs submit
ideas that are voted and commented on by other users. Participants get
points for contributing ideas, voting, having ideas implemented and so
forth — and the points can be used in Manor’s online store to get prizes
such as T-shirts, a framed flag and the opportunity to be mayor for a
day. Since the site launched in October, Manor has gotten 68 ideas and
implemented five of them, including posting recycling and trash
schedules online & allowing automatic debits for utility bills.
Manor also uses SeeClickFix to help residents report street and water
problems in their neighborhood. Through the program, people can open
tickets online & send photos to illustrate the problem.
